Personal:   I was born in California but have been in the Pacific Northwest for the past 50+ years.  This is why I classify myself as a true NW native.  I am the proud mom of two beautiful grown children.  I enjoy meeting new people and socializing.  Funny thing is while looking back on my report cards as a young child, my teachers always said that I socialized too much.  I bet they never thought that it would be beneficial to me in my career later.  I love people and helping them achieve their goals.  In my spare time, I volunteer for a nonprofit organization that helps homeless youth to find significance in their lives.  I spend most of my Monday evenings serving them dinner and letting them know that they are important.  This happens rain or shine in the streets of Downtown Portland.

I love to spend time outdoors.  If the sun is out, I like to be outside and my favorite way to spend my off time  is to golf.  I enjoy driving the streets and looking at homes, even in my off time.
