Umatilla County Parole and Probation
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
I grew up in Hermiston but moved away in 2010, and moved back in 2017 because I was offered an amazing job that I couldn’t turn down.
What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
My favorite place to eat is definitely Nookies or Hales. Two places I can always rely on for a good meal.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I love to take my dog out to play and run off-leash somewhere with lots of area for him to be free. I wish Hermiston had an off-leash dog park; that would be amazing.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
The thing that surprises me is how much it has grown in the past few years, but still seems to keep that small-town feel and a close community.
What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. A book of poems that is a perfect read before bed.
What app or website do you use most often other than Facebook or Google?
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I’ve always wanted to visit Ireland, as well as anywhere with a warm beach that I could swim in. The Oregon coast is always a little too cold for that.
What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you?
Hmm, that’s a hard one. I laugh at myself for ridiculous things I do pretty often so coming up with a specific moment seems impossible.
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
I am planning on traveling more in the next year, and have made that a goal.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Graduating college and accepting a job working for Umatilla County Parole and Probation. Definitely.
