Growing up in Asheville, NC I loved my years there, however; in 1989 I headed to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and have not looked back! The ocean pulled me like a magnet. In May 1993 I graduated with a major in Communications. In September 1993 I married Gene Ingle and moved west to the foothills of the mountains to Hickory, NC. But the coast and all it offered drew us back to the beach in 2002. In July of 2008 I earned my Real Estate License and began my career. As the Great Recession began I had the privilege (only from hindsight) to grow and learn how to navigate the ever changing waters of our local market. At heart I am a teacher and endeavor to point my clients toward the best decision possible for their personal needs. The difficult early years have enabled me to play an important role on the Keith Beatty Team with my vast understanding of the area and the market. 2014 will be a great year in our market and I look forward to assisting you. Gene and I have 15 and 13 year old boys and an 8 year old lab. Aside from work I love boating, swimming, paddle boarding, walking the loop, reading, teaching Middle School Sunday School and participating in what we affectionately term “forced family fun”!
