Dee is a Georgia native, originally from Savannah Georgia. She studied Education and Business Administration while attending Georgia Southern University in Statesboro Georgia. After college Dee moved to the Jacksonville area and later moved to Amelia Island to bring her children up in a "Small Town Community." She has lived on the Island for 26 years. Dee has over 30 years of sales and customer service experience in a wide variety of areas including: retail management; designer clothing; luxury automobiles; information technology; recruiting and account management; and as an entrepreneur. She has worked in the Property Management field for the last 10 years and in the last five of those years, has successfully owned and operated her "Preferred-Select Style" Short Term-Vacation Rental and Management Company. Her diligence and work ethic has earned and maintained a "Five-Star" customer rating, which recognizes her exceptional ability to provide high-end, select property rentals on the south end of Amelia Island. Dee's real estate sales and service is focused on investment properties, specifically short-term rental properties because she possesses so much firsthand knowledge of this market niche. When she's not working, Dee enjoys long walks on the beach with her Weimaraner, Jake, looking for sharks' teeth, fishing, boating, cooking meals for family and friends, decorating, antiquing, and traveling to Pennsylvania to visit her children and grandchildren.
