I was born and raised in Grants Pass. I graduated from Grants Pass High School (proud to be `83) and lived here until 1992, when I moved to Eugene and then later to Portland. I started my first job when I was fifteen; it was at the Hong Kong restaurant. I wore many hats during my restaurant career. When I decided it was time to take my life in a new direction, I found no place better to start than back at home in Grants Pass; I returned here in the summer of 2011. Shortly after moving back I was very lucky find my place in the KAJO/KLDR family.
When I'm not working I love most things that take place outside the home; I can never get enough time in the sun! I truly enjoy digging in the dirt and watching things grow (hopefully). I also really enjoy spending time in the water (if it's not freezing). I received my SCUBA certification a few years ago and have enjoyed participating in several amazing dives.
When not enjoying my hobbies, I try to spend as much time as possible with my three children and three grandchildren. The rest of my family rank pretty highly in my life too.
