I was born in Portland, Oregon and raised there and in Ocean Park. My family spent 9 months each year during school in Portland and 3 months, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, in Ocean Park. We entertained friends at the beach and enjoyed all of the activities like exploring, clam digging, surf fishing, salmon fishing, bicycle riding, beach fires and other fun activities. During the summer months of high school I worked in Ocean Park at a gas station that was located in the corner of Jack’s Country Store where the fishing gear is now displayed. I also worked one summer in the oyster beds and learned a lot about the local industry. My adult work has provided background that has helped me in real estate sales, including the Clark County Home Builders Association where I learned about housing, real estate and consumer complaint handling and the City of Portland and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission where I learned a lot about negotiating and protecting neighborhood livability. Now, my dream has come true, living and working at the coast and enjoying all that it has to offer. I especially enjoy helping people find their dream home on the peninsula so they too can enjoy all of this.
