Being an Oregon native, I’ve learned to appreciate the outdoors. During the summer, I enjoy kayaking on Sparks, Hosmer & Paulina Lake. During the winter, I like to snow shoe with friends especially on the Virginia Meissner Trailhead which usually includes plenty of laughing. I have one daughter named Hannah who is pursuing a career in dentistry. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in business administration & accounting, & I've been a licensed Realtor in the State of Oregon since 2006. In the late '80's, I was fortunate to experience life in Berlin, GE when West & East Berlin existed. I think it is important to have a positive attitude and laugh often.
