After living all over the world, I made Florida my home! I was born in the former Soviet Union, in the city of Tashkent in what is now called Uzbekistan, and I have been a naturalized US Citizen for over a decade. I spent my childhood between Moscow and other international cities, including Cairo and Tripoli. I am fluent in English, Russian and Italian.

After earning my PhD in English Grammar in Moscow, I taught English and eventually was named a Fulbright Scholar and began teaching at The George Washington University (GWU) in Washington, DC. After a stint working at the US Embassy in Tashkent, I moved to Washington DC full time and became a faculty member at GWU for 10 years before my husband and I decided to leave the Washington, DC area for Florida.

I moved to Florida because I love the natural beauty and lovely weather here on Florida’s Suncoast, and the fantastic location, convenient to all transportation hubs as well as our beautiful beaches and wildlife.

I love working with people. I worked at the American International School in New Delhi, India, and have taught at several colleges and universities. At the US Embassy in Uzbekistan I worked for the US Department of Commerce as a liaison between American companies and local governments and businesses. 

Travel is my passion. Everywhere we go I love meeting new people, listening to their stories and learning more about different cultures. I grew up in Egypt and lived in India for almost three years. We traveled to Libya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Thailand, Turkey, Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, Australia, and almost everywhere in Europe. I want to meet you and learn more about your culture and interests!

I am very analytical and I love everything to do with real estate! I have bought, sold, redecorated, and improved many homes throughout the world and I feel uniquely qualified to help you find your dream home! I want to work with you and do the research you need to provide you with the very best solution to your real estate needs right here in Florida.
