I grew up in banana belt in the beautiful pacific northwest of Port Angeles/Sequim, WA and moved to Thurston County in 2005.
 
What are at least 3 activities that you like doing on the weekends when you’re not doing insurance?
Every April – September you will find our family at a Quarter Midget race track between Portland, OR to Langley, BC on most weekends while our 11 year old daughter races, this keeps us more than busy!  I enjoy camping, reading, gardening in my flower beds and spending time with family and friends.
 
Are you married? Have any kids?
My husband Mike and I have been married for 12 years.  Our family is made up of 3 children, 2 sons (Jacob & Karter and 1 daughter (Brianna) and 2 dogs, Bristol and Bailey.
 
What song do you listen to on repeat?
I am definitely a channel surfer, no one song jumps out at me.  I have multiple songs on my play list that I enjoy blasting while driving anywhere, especially on a sunny day!
 
What’s your favorite family tradition?
Due to the amount of property we own, we host an annual bon fire/burn party the first weekend the burn ban is lifted in October and New Year’s Eve Bash.  Our friends/family bring what they want to campout in to our property and camp out!  We find ourselves eating, laughing and making memories.
