Bio Coming Soon
With more than 20 years in the lending mortgage business, I truly love my job and am passionate about helping families with their mortgage needs. Giving back to the community is very important to me. In addition to helping on committees like the Clark County Mural Society, or the Building Industry Association, I am a certified instructor for Washington State Bond’s Home Advantage Program.
Most of my free time is spent with my beautiful twin boys whom just turned six. They are full of energy, and any day without fighting over toys or which seat at the dinner table, is a good day for us. My free time is spent on the golf course or enjoying a glass of Merlot with sisters while playing a competitive game of cribbage.
Bio Coming Soon
In my elected role as a member of the Vancouver City Council (1990-1998), I focused much of my energies in the Education and housing arenas. I founded the Housing Resource Center to help educate first time home buyers. As a realtor since 1994 I have enjoyed advising and advocating for my clients. I believe in networking and collaboration which is why I founded the Greater Vancouver Luxury Homes Group (coalition of realtors from Clark County) and continue as Premier Director (representing Windermere Real Estate/Stellar Group to our NW region). I value our community and have enjoyed being intimately involved since moving here in 1981: Arts Councils, SW Washington Independent Forward Thrust (SWIFT – raised local funds to give back to the community), Women in Action (WIA – supported women to be all that they can be), Pink Power Board Member (raising money to build a state-of-the-art Breast Center). Prior to moving to Vancouver, I taught for 12 years, teaching in a private school, A Gifted Program and wrote a children’s picture cookbook: Kiddie Cookery. My husband, David, and I have raised two wonderful sons who have married and chosen to settle in Vancouver with their families. They have blessed us with 3 grandchildren.
