As a Real Estate Professional, my goal is to provide exceptional service. My extensive knowledge of the community and it’s surroundings allow me to locate the ideal property for each client or market a property to it’s fullest potential. I have close working relationships with local lenders and title companies, as well as city and county planning divisions and am Vice President of the Northeast Oregon Board of Realtors, providing me with additional education to continue to improve myself and my business.
My family settled in the Grande Ronde Valley in the early 1950’s. My mother’s side moved from Hood River after my grandfather, a state trooper, transferred to La Grande. My father’s side was a logging family transplanted from Grant County.
I was born and raised in La Grande along with my sister, Karrine, who is the regional publisher for The Observer and The Herald. I graduated from La Grande High School in 1999. I met my husband, Cody, in high school and together we have two amazing boys, Carson and Colten. Cody works at Barreto Manufacturing.
Previously, I worked for Lincare for 12 years. Six of those years, I was a center manager of Eastern Oregon, covering Union, Wallowa, Baker, Grant and Umatilla counties. I enjoy all that this valley has to offer including hunting, fishing, camping and hiking. You can’t beat green Eastern Oregon springs, beautiful multi-colored autumns, warm summer days giving way to cool nights, and our winter snowfall for all of the local snow bunnies.
I completed my real estate education through Portland Community College and was so excited to immediately be welcomed by John J. Howard & Associates. I enjoy working with both Buyer’s and Seller’s of residential, commercial and investment properties and look forward to building new relationships along the way.
