Aloha! Providing superior client service, whether listing your property or finding your next home or investment, is what I strive to achieve with every transaction. That is my value proposition and commitment to you.

You may have noticed my accent. I was born on the French Riviera in France and completed my degree in International Business and Japanese Language at Paris Dauphine University. After graduation, I lived in Tokyo and worked for NHK, the Japanese broadcasting organization. I also lived in Los Angeles and moved to Maui to help open the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, before relocating to Honolulu to be a salesperson at Ermenegildo Zegna and personal shopper at Neiman Marcus.

Having lived on Maui and Oahu for the past 25 years and starting our family here (husband Bruce and two children, Nicolas and Noelle); I can truly say Hawaii “no ka oi”! The natural beauty of Hawaii is a wonderful complement to the lavender fields and estates of Provence, museums in Paris and temples in Kyoto.

Being an entrepreneur and having a keen interest in design is in my DNA. My father worked in the fashion industry in Paris while my brother has owned several restaurants in Paris, Maui and Las Vegas. I believe this background and a strong work ethic contributes to my success in real estate.

I am multi-lingual (English, French, Spanish and Japanese) and was named Keller Williams Honolulu “Newcomer of the Year” in 2015. I look forward to having the opportunity to serve you. Mahalo!
