When and why did you move to the area?
My husband Tyler and I moved to Hermiston in 2009 when he was offered a teaching position at Stanfield School District. We moved to Stanfield in 2013 to be in the same community where he taught.
What is your favorite place to eat in the area?
My favorite place to eat in the area is Broken Barrel in Stanfield. They have top notch food and service!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Hermiston has a great Parks and Recreation program. We have been involved with city league sports since we moved here and it’s one of our favorite activities. I also love spending time at our family cabin by Indian Lake.
What surprises you about Stanfield?
What surprises me most about Stanfield is how many people graduate and then move back. It’s a small community that people feel really connected to.
What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was Diary of a Wimpy Kid “The Getaway” with my son Phoenix. We laughed throughout the entire book and are looking forward to starting the next one!
What app or website do you use most often other than Facebook or Google?
I do workforce development, and whether I am working with students or giving a presentation to adults, I always use Prezi. I love the creativity it offers and how easy it is to use.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I am fascinated by history, so I would love to travel through Europe before World War II.
What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you?
When I was growing up I got pulled over by a police officer driving a golf cart to the store for an afternoon snack.
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
To have no debt except our mortgage
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Personally, my proudest accomplishment is my kids Phoenix and Avalyn. They are always surprising me with their unique personalities and passions. Professionally, I would have to say developing new roles at the Port of Morrow. My time at the SAGE Center was both challenging and incredibly rewarding. Now in Workforce Development, I have the privilege of connecting people to career opportunities available within the Port.
