What is your occupation?

I am the Business Developer for Express Employment Professionals in Hermiston.

What do you like about your job?

The positive impact we have on people’s lives every day.

In which town do you live?


How long have you lived there?

I grew up there but moved out of the area when I was 21. I just moved back to Echo in February of this year.

What do you like best about it?

It’s a slower pace of life than Eugene (where I lived for almost 30 years) and I love that.

What are your hobbies?

Cooking, reading, taking care of my dog.

Do you have any favorite movies, books or tv shows? What are they?

Favorite movie: The Shack. Favorite book: Outlander series. Favorite TV Shows: Outlander and most dramas

Can you tell me about your favorite teacher? What did you learn from that person?

Dr. Jacobson at Blue Mountain Community College. He was my biology instructor. I learned I have more red blood cells than most men, which apparently is uncommon for women.

Can you tell me about your family?

My parents live in the area. My brother and his wife live in Clarkston, Washington. My sister lives in Eugene. I have two nephews, four nieces, four great-nieces and three great nephews.

When you meet strangers, what do you tell them about yourself first?

About my love for dogs. I’ve been an advocate of dog rescue programs for the last 20 years. Adopt, don’t shop!
