In 2016, Venous, a gemologist and engineer, made an industry leap from luxury fine jewelry to pursue a long-held passion for real estate and joined the The Nellis Group as the Director of Expansion. Utilizing her years of experience recruiting, training, productivity management and coaching, she set off to master her new career in real estate. Venous ultimately joined the team because the mission and culture of The Nellis Group are not only in alignment with her core values, but the opportunity would also allow her to create careers for others to and serve help her community.
When James Nellis, the CEO of The Nellis Group, asked Venous to break into the Washington D.C. and Maryland markets by opening and managing an office in Tenleytown NW and Columbia Maryland simultaneously, he had done so recognizing the depth of experience and skill Venous had gained from her 20 year long career driven by client focused business development, initially in the fine jewelry industry, but more recently through her successful stint as the Director of Expansion for The Nellis Group’s real estate business in the diverse and highly competitive market of Northern Virginia.
Venous’ success in the competitive worlds of both fine jewelry and residential real estate are a testament to not only her passion for business, but her genuine care and unwavering commitment to her staff and clients who love her integrity, enthusiasm and professionalism, along with her attention to detail and inexhaustible work ethic.
Venous moved to Washington D.C. in 1997 and is a graduate of George Washington University where she fell in love with the DMV area. In October of 2017 she met her husband, Edward Jones, and they were wed in November of 2019. Additionally, Venous serves on the Board of Directors for the Ophelia Foundation, a cause near and dear to her and Edward.
Whether she’s enjoying cooking, quality time with Edward, attending concerts or creating spreadsheets for her spreadsheets, Venous is energized, engaged and enjoying life, but never far from The Nellis Group team and doggedly dedicated to her work and family.
