About

Hi, I’m Emily and I thrive on helping people make awesome things happen. My first job out of college was as a Outdoor Marine Science Instructor for the Catalina Island Marine Institute. My degree in Ocean and Coastal Resources (Texas A&M University, Galveston) paved the way for a decade long adventure living on all coasts of the US and years helping run an eco adventure company out of La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. As I got older I yearned for some stability and bought a house on the West End of Galveston Island.

As with most things I do, I went big and became a Realtor. I love helping people buy and sell their most precious coastal resource, their home. I found solace in the smiles of my clients realizing their dream of coastal home ownership. It is not just a house, it is a lifestyle. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks – everything I have done in my life has prepared me to help you travel authentically, explore coastal real estate, and even help you start a small business. 

In my experience as a guide and teacher, a person cannot love something they do not understand. From the smallest of children, to famous mountaineers the look in their eye is priceless when they understand the magic of what they are seeing. I am no longer a Naturalist Guide (unless you agree to walk down a beach or go to an aquarium with me) and have been traveling more for pleasure. I have noticed that people travel very differently from one another. I can help you travel like a local.
