After moving to Gresham in 1985 to attend MHCC and then marry the man of my dreams, we bought our first house, and I stayed home to raise our two kids. When they became independent, I assisted for many years in a Title 1 program teaching children to read at a local grade school. Helping the kids was very rewarding. There is nothing I like better than to give a suggestion or helpful hint that benefits someone. To me, that is the beauty of being a Realtor. This profession is all about helping people. Along with being a "suggestion box", as my family lovingly calls me, I enjoy reading, walking, bird watching, gardening, language learning, and watching British T.V. and film. We also attend a local church where my husband and I help international students navigate life in America.
