Vancouver, WA 98685
As a native of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I am proud to call this wonderful community my home. I graduated from Prairie High School in 1994. Some of my fondest high school memories were of basketball. As the starting point guard, we were the first team to win the WIAA Women’s Basketball State Championships two years in a row, 1993 and 1994. I feel blessed to have been selected to first team all-state. After high school, I attended Corban University, a small private Christian school located in Salem on a basketball scholarship. With countless hours of practice and an unrelenting will to succeed, I led our team to victory once again by winning two NCCAA National Championships.
I graduated with Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Prior to the lending industry, I was as a Director of Sales for Marriott, specializing in relocation and corporate travel. With the birth of my boys, Colin and Tegen, I refocused my time and energy towards my family. Once my boys were in school, I re-entered the work force as a lending professional.
Being involved in the community is important to my husband Bruce and myself. We support many charitable organizations either with time or monetarily. I’m one of the founding members of the Southwest Washington 100 Women Who Cares. This organization donates $80,000+ yearly to local non-profit organizations. We believe in the betterment of children’s lives through values and education. Supporting Teach One to Lead One’s mentoring program seeing the transformation and impact in our community, leading students into a life of purpose and potential is crucial and needed. The Vancouver Symphony is a phenomenal and fun group of musicians. With my love of music and my boys’ interest in piano and saxophone, supporting the symphony was an easy decision. I was the assistant varsity coach for the Kings Way High School Girls’ Basketball team for the 2017-2018 season. To each of these young ladies I loved providing my knowledge of the game and guidance in life.
When I’m not busy helping clients or volunteering, I enjoy golfing, leisure bicycling, boating, skiing, snow skiing, gourmet cooking and especially, spending time with my two wonderful boys and husband.
“Gladly serving the community that I love and appreciate.”
