Born and raised in a small town in upstate NY, I never imagined that my life would truly unfold in Nashville, TN. Raised in a family deeply rooted in music, from my grandfather playing the organ and banjo to my father and his electric guitar, Music City seemed a natural fit. However, music is not what compelled me to this new venture. Instead, it was the loss of a thirteen year marriage and the need to provide for my three children that sparked, what my mother coined as a "MASS EXODUS" of the DeGraw family. At the urging of my brothers, one a successful singer songwriter and the other a successful entrepreneur, I moved to Nashville, sight unseen, to begin a new path in the Bar and Restaurant business. It's hard to believe that was more than ten years ago! Now, with three grown children who deserve every bit of bragging I do, navigating deep loss, new love and the very real challenges of life itself, I continue to evolve as a successful mother, respected healthcare provider and, my newest venture, a Top Producing Realtor in this AMAZING CITY!
