After 15 years in the moving and delivery industry, I decided to pursue a career in real estate. I am excited about the wonderful opportunity real estate offers to connect with the amazing people of the Inland Northwest. I am also looking forward to the opportunity to genuinely help them as they make decisions about real estate.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, camping, and quality time with family and friends at Newman Lake.
