Being a third-generation island girl, I’m definitely an islander at heart! It brings me such joy to introduce newcomers to the beauty of Bainbridge Island.

Bainbridge’s Many Benefits

Bainbridge Island is known as a “small town, big heart” community. Islanders and newcomers alike love that Seattle is just an easy, relaxing ferry ride away. Our artisan boutiques and award-winning restaurants add a quaint glamor rarely experienced elsewhere. And, who doesn’t love our lush, green surroundings, mountain views, and the crystal blue saltwater of the Puget Sound? Bainbridge Island is known for its hiking trails, beautiful beaches, and unique neighborhoods. It is the perfect launchpad to explore the majestic Kitsap Peninsula.

What I Love to Share with Newcomers

Since my family has been here for generations, I love sharing old tales, which often intrigue my clients. My stories are ones that often no one else knows, and that adds to the romance and uniqueness that comes from living on an island. Our community is rich in history, arts and culture. I love to show newcomers Bainbridge Island’s hidden gems – my favorite spots. I want to make sure that they’re able to get the inside scoop on island life from a proud local.

For families looking to move to Bainbridge, I am quick to tell them about our excellent schools. Not only did I attend them myself, but my children did as well, and they had wonderful experiences. Our students demonstrate some of the highest academic achievement in the state of Washington. It is an ideal place to raise a family. It’s so safe and full of opportunities that help set children up for success.
