About Me



Growing up in Asheville, NC I loved my years there, however; in 1989 I headed to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and have not looked back!  The ocean pulled like a magnet.

In May 1993 I graduated with a major in Communications.  In September 1993 I married Gene Ingle and moved west to the foothills of the mountains to Hickory, NC, but the coast and all it offered drew us back to the beach in 2002. In July of 2008, I began my real estate career.  As the Great Recession began I had the privilege (only from hindsight) to grow and learn how to navigate the ever changing waters of our local market.

At heart, I am a teacher and attempt to educate my clients on current market conditions to enable them to make the best decision for their family. The difficult early years have enabled me to play an important role on The Rising Tide Team with my vast understanding of the area and the market.

The Rising Tide team’s core values consist of choosing humility, building relationships, being people of integrity, willing to learn and grow, adding value by being resourceful and communicating effectively.  We choose to focus what is right and help our clients reach their individual goals.

Gene and I have two young men (born in ’98 and ’00) and a black lab named Pepper. Aside from work, I love boating, swimming, paddle boarding, walking the loop, reading, teaching Sunday School and participating in what we affectionately term “forced family fun”!

I look forward to assisting you!
