Jo Ann's Journey To Real Estate
I LOVE people. I LOVE homes. It's really that simple, but what led me to real estate is a little more complicated. I’m a farmer’s daughter from Wisconsin who grew up milking cows, baling hay and riding horses. Those were long hard days on the farm that instilled in me an unmatched work ethic and exceptional values that now permeate my professional life as a realtor.
I pursued my childhood dream of becoming a journalist and spent more than two decades as a TV and radio anchor working in Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, Arkansas and right here in Arizona. As a leader in the communities I served, folks trusted me to come into their homes every night and share with them what has happening in their backyard and across the world and I was humbled and honored by the privilege to serve.
I’ve covered some of the major events that have shaped this nation including responding to the Twin Towers during the 9/11 attack. I’ve worked with powerful politicians, celebrities, professional athletes, but my favorite stories to tell were those of everyday people. And now I get to tell the story of your home.

Let's Get Personal
I love to spend time outside and soak up the beauty of Arizona and bask in the sunshine. I dig the mountains and hiking with my sweet husband, Scott, and our dogs Dillon and Walter. My favorite Arizona hike is Havasupai Falls and I made the 20 mile trek in and out in just one day! I’m a yogi and have taught for 10 years. It's on my yoga mat where this type-A personality finds some peace and serenity. I have deep friendships and love belly laughs, good wine and great food.
“Helping people find their dream home is my dream.”
