Prior to starting my career in real estate, I taught special education students in Hillsborough County Public Schools, where I worked with autistic children, and advocated for their needs. Pushing my professional interests in the Tampa Bay Area a step further, I left teaching to pursue a career in residential real estate. In 1993, I started with Century 21, where I received the Rookie of the Year Award, and after a successful run, moved on to RE/MAX, where I continued on a trajectory of excellence, eventually carrying a multi-million-dollar rental portfolio and moving on yet again to own and operate my own firm for twelve years, HomeStar Realty. During my time away from work, I enjoy painting, experimenting with essential oils, working out, and preparing healthy meals for my family. By way of education, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education from the University of South Florida.
As a former Series 7 Stock Broker and mortgage broker, my experience in investments and mortgage banking is deep and benefits clients greatly. I earned Bachelor of Arts degrees in English Literature and Mass Communications from Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey. I am also musically talented, and as such, spend my spare time composing music, teaching guitar and songwriting to kids, and performing as a guitarist and vocalist; occasionally opening for musical groups such as Flock of Seagulls and Yellowman.
I am the personal assistant to Tim & Lisa Carroll. My background includes working at newspapers as both a writer and an editor. To Team TLC I bring creativity, attention to detail, and a desire to help everyone reach their goals.
I am a graduate of the University of Central Florida with a BA in Communication. I am a proud wife and mom of three beautiful daughters. I am an advocate for children, our schools, our community and love volunteering around Tampa Bay. In my free time I enjoy traveling, watching sports, reading, crafting and baking.
I am dedicated to helping others realize their homeownership goals. With more than 20 years experience as a licensed Realtor/Agent, I know how to connect buyers and sellers to maximize the real estate experience.

As a native of Tampa Bay, I work the entire community including Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties. Occasionally I also help clients in Hernando and Polk counties. I contribute my success and length of my career to a firm belief in treating people the way they want to be treated. With hard work and integrity, I am dedicated to helping each client meet their goals. I have been blessed to work with hundreds of people, seeing their individual goals accomplished. I give each client my eyes, ears and real estate knowledge and provide the highest quality of service. I have vast experience in negotiating and facilitating transactions with success.

I enjoy meeting new people, exploring my community including the beach, and taking advantage of all the fun Florida has to offer. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
My experience in real estate started in 2008 in rehabbing residential properties with my husband. I then moved into a Realtor role at Century 21, finally deciding to join Mihara Team TLC in 2016. All of these experiences helped me become a Realtor who understands home construction, hard financial facts, and aesthetics. As a matter of course, I quickly evaluate the quality of a property; know how to match properties to each client’s unique financial situation, and understand how different elements combine to produce beauty and value in a home. I enjoy an active lifestyle that includes horseback riding, bicycling, boating, and rollerblading. I am also the proud wife of an amazing husband and very proud mother of two levelheaded children, and I prioritize family and God in life. The thing I love most about my job is being a buyer’s agent and helping people find a place to call “Home.”
I am a people helper. My many years in the retail business has allowed me to meet and serve people from all walks of life. It is my love for helping others that has led me into the real estate field. As a realtor, I take pride in helping families realize one of their greatest life goals of home ownership. I have served as a youth pastor for 17years and currently serve as associate pastor in my church. This helps me to identify with the young and the not so young. I am a good listener who always caters to the needs of my client. I work with integrity, I am punctual, and treat everyone with respect and honesty.
