I was born in Vancouver, and I love the Pacific NW. I received my Bachelor of Science in Political Science from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I enjoy baking, reading, and exploring the many hiking trails that this area has to offer. My background is in healthcare. I transitioned from helping patients on the clinical side, to helping clients with their Medicare needs. I love my job and feel truly grateful for the opportunity to be able to work with such an amazing team!
The Pacific Northwest is a great place to live. Easy access to the coast makes a trip to the beach a family favorite. Growing up in this area I appreciate our overcast and rainy days. This is especially true in the Fall when the leaves turn their golden yellows and deep reds.Hobbies include supporting our local Little League and Scholastic Band Programs. Another favorite is partaking in the numerous coffee roasters in the area. Yes! I love coffee.

I love the Pacific NW and all the camping and hiking it has to offer for me and my crazy Dalmatian, Gus. I've been a part of the HealthCare Options NW team since July of 2018, I have learned so much from Craig and the team and I look forward to assisting you with your Medicare plan!
I was born and raised in the Pacific NW and after graduating from Ridgefield High School I moved to California and began working for Anheuser Busch. After retirement I moved back home.
