Licensed in Virginia and born and raised on the island of Oahu in Hawaii, I’ve always been an overachiever. I finished my Bachelor of Science in Travel Industry Management, and my Army veteran husband, Ben Guidry, and I bought our first home when we were 21 years old.We moved to Virginia in 2010 and settled in Reston with our 4 daughters.Real Estate has always been interesting and exciting dream for us.
I bring a wide range of experience in customer service and a strong commitment to my clients.In my past jobs in the travel and banking industries, I was known for going above and beyond, being creative with solving clients’ problems and always following through with commitments. I thrive on challenges; in fact, I finished my Master’s Degree in Business Administration with the University of Phoenix in 2009 while working full-time at the Bank of Hawaii and pregnant with my third daughter.
Since arriving in Northern Virginia, I’ve become a part of this amazing area through numerous volunteer and outreach activities. I brought the Buy Nothing Project – a group that builds community by sharing and reusing unneeded items – to Reston and the surrounding areas and went on to administer and support over 200 groups in the Mid-Atlantic.I’m passionate about community and my daughters’ education, serving as the PTO Treasurer for Dogwood Elementary School.I’ve taught cooking and craft classes and summer camps at the Reston Community Center and coached youth swimming with Machine Aquatics.I also served as a Girl Scout leader and the regional cookie sales supervisor.Following my oldest daughter’s diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes, our family has been dedicated to fundraising for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and bringing awareness to the community, friends and family.
In my free time, I like to take on home improvement projects, including remodeling our kitchen and bathrooms and repairing our deck and driveway. I also love to travel, most recently completing an Alaskan Cruise with over 20 family members! Future travel plans include Disney World and Europe.
