As a Realtor, my goal is to provide exceptional service, whether that be through responding in a timely manner, ensuring each transaction is followed through with ease and convenience, or using my knowledge of the area to locate the ideal property for each client. Buying property can be stressful, but I feel that by working with the right Realtor, it doesn’t have to be. I am dedicated to treating each client and transaction as if they are the most important of my career.
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 and is also a reserve sheriff deputy for Union County.
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 in December 2018 and was so excited to be welcomed by John J. Howard & Associates. I am eager to work with the community to help find new dream homes, locate commercial properties to star new businesses, or rental home for the budding investor.
