After graduation, she moved onto George Mason University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a concentration in Interpersonal Communications and Marketing.

While attending college, she started working for Bruce & Tanya as an assistant but quickly moved her way up to a licensed realtor in 2003. She enjoys working with both buyers and sellers and feels that she can see both sides of the transaction which benefits her clients tremendously. She’s an extremely friendly, down-to-earth agent who truly has her clients’ best interest at heart and loves her job.


Sunny married her husband Seth in 2005. The two currently live in West Springfield with their two boys, Ethan and Dylan.

She also feels blessed that she gets to spend so much quality time with her mom, dad and younger brothers and sister who live just minutes from her house.
