I like to think my enthusiasm really comes through, which is important because real estate transactions can be difficult. But I love the challenges, be they people issues or property concerns.

So, not only will you get outstanding service; expect to have a little fun along the way. I started in real estate after a long successful career in information technology project management for large companies like Nissan Motor Corporation. Those complex projects revealed the importance of building strong relationships. You can understand business and meet the technical requirements of any job, but it’s the people that make it work. You don’t get through those big projects without a little fun here and there.

On a personal note, my husband (a scientist) and I are sea kayakers, engage in the local music scene as well as other community events, and enjoy spending time working in the yard of our rural Philomath home. We are members of the Willamette Kayak and Canoe Club as well as the Corvallis Folklore Society.
