I have lived in Pasco my whole life would not change that even if I could. Meeting new people is always plus. You never know who's going to walk in though the door. I enjoy working with my supportive team and the customers that I come in contact each day. I love history! Living history is the best, I always find myself talking with older clients about life experiences they have had. I like to think I am an active individual, I played tennis all four years of high school and wasn't too bad at it. When I’m not working, you can find me at the local park shooting some hoop. Recently, I have learned to play different instruments (Drums and guitar). I believe in social causes, this summer I will be going to Mexico for a week to help build two homes for less fortunate families.
I grew up in southern CA and moved to Othello, WA in the early 90's. I moved to Tri-cities in 2001. I am a certified Crossfit trainer who also happens to have 14 years experience in the insurance industry. I find it satisfying helping our customers protect what matter the most to them. Personally, I believe fitness in general is important. Outside of the office you can find me training at a Crossfit gym where I love to powerlift and Olympic lift, on the river with my canoe club or hiking. When I can, I volunteer at the teen and adult homeless shelters, serving lunch on Sundays.
