I grew up and went to college on the west side of the state near Olympia. I met my husband while in college. We transferred together to Eastern Washington University and settled down. I spent several years as a Pre Kindergarten teacher along with becoming the director of a large child care facility in the area. I gave up teaching to be a stay at home mom for the first several years of my daughters life. I then started a great career in insurance which I recently left to pursue a dream of mine and become a Real Estate Agent. Now I get to serve you on the exciting experience of buying or selling a home. Giving back has been a great source of joy to me. I am currently a foster parent here in Spokane and have been for the last 5 years. I am involved in my church and several community organizations. Some that are close to my heart are The Ronald McDonald house, The Salvation Army, Sally's House, Mission Community Outreach Center and Second Harvest as well as serving on missions. I think I left a part of my heart in Haiti on my last trip. I truly enjoy reading, hiking, camping, swimming, gardening and geocaching. If I am not at work you will find me with my family.
