Born in Whitefish Montana, I grew up with a soccer ball at my feet and a fly rod in my hand chasing trout. I came to Willamette University on scholarship to play soccer (and lacrosse), and graduated with a degree in economics and an MBA from Atkinson Graduate School at Willamette.
My work experience started in marketing with a boutique CPA/Investment firm, where I first began to see the benefits of commercial property through the clients we served. I spent another four years learning commercial real estate through the lens of commercial banking with Willamette Valley Bank, and then Title and Escrow with Fidelity National Title before becoming a commercial broker.
I am skilled in identifying opportunity, qualifying needs, trust building, negotiating, cultivating meaningful relationships quickly, and closing deals. Creative/dynamic thinking and the ability to execute outside the box ideas are a consistent contributor to team success.
Within the community I have been fortunate to be involved in some great groups, with some great people. Some highlights include running an AM radio show, being a broadcast announcer for Willamette and Timbers U-23 soccer programs, head coach of McNary Varsity Girls soccer, part of the launch team for Salem Sharks, Divine Foundation, The Great Salem Race, and Lemonade Day Salem. The group that has had the greatest influence on my life is Rotary, and I will be a Rotarian for life.
