I was born in southern California into a big, boisterous Irish family. I think that my love of people and life arose from the tightly knit community in which I was raised. When I was still quite young we transferred to the DC metro area. What a change! I was and am fascinated by the cultural diversity and spirit this area in particular has to offer.
Although the majority of my experience has been in Montgomery County, I am licensed in Washington D.C. and Virginia as well. What I appreciate about this part of the country is that no matter how big or small, every place I?ve visited has a unique history and character; as do its citizens. This is a place that despite its transitory nature is very devoted to the values and traditions of each and every community. There are many, and each feels like a neighborhood in the truest sense of the word.
It is common knowledge that we live at the seat of the grandest political power in the world. What many people don?t know about are the cultural possibilities, the consistent high quality of many of our school systems, the exquisite natural and constructed beauties that surround us, the capability to be at the sea or in the mountains in a short drive, the variety of entertainment options and the spirit that binds us together in the understanding that we are in a special place.
We are home to many sports teams. Professional, semi-professional and amateur leagues provide spectacle and entertainment in a wide variety of athletic arenas--from the Washington Redskins to the MLS children?s league there is an activity for everyone!
Montgomery County has been often rated as one of the wealthiest counties in the country. Established in 1776, it features rolling farms to the west and cosmopolitan cities to the east and south. The Capitol Beltway (495) and I270 provide residents from all over the county easy access to Washington DC and Baltimore. The Metro, Metro bus, and MARC commuter rail provide easy transportation within the county and all over the Metro area.
I am always happy to provide detailed information about the characteristics of the Washington metropolitan area. Please feel free to contact me!
