One of my husband’s many map-inspired neck-ties includes the phrase “This World is not my Home.” Although this has important faith implications, it also describes my life: I was born in South Africa to Norwegian immigrants, but raised in Norway. I married a South African, and accompanied him as a South African diplomat to Israel, a student in Dallas, Texas, and later again as a diplomat when he opened the first South African embassy in Jordan. We arrived in North Carolina in 2001, and I started working in the accounting office of Wilson West Agency in 2009. I enjoy the personal interactions, both with my colleagues, and with our owners and tenants, as we seek to give them the best value for their money.

Born and raised in the Midwest, I still consider myself a native of Raleigh. However, I am a fan of the Green Bay Packers, a Cheesehead forever.
