As I've written elsewhere - bios are difficult! Always want you to have the complete picture! --and there are too many experiences to condense to a paragraph or three. So I'll give you a current snapshot: Artist, reader, gardener, real estate broker, grandmother to three great people (Ryan, Josh and Kinsey), a friend to many, a confidant, a role model to a few I've been told, an advocate for causes I believe in, fun-loving and funny - not always by choice! Traveler, although recently more vicariously than actually getting there.
I've been a therapist, an organizational development and diversity consultant, an author, an administrative assistant, a merchandiser for a women's specialty shop and years ago I worked for the phone company as an operator! Funny how all those skills I've learned along the way to here have come in handy. Talk about recycling - nothing gets wasted!
As an educator, I'm a firm believer in life long learning and continuing education. And being a bit of an over-achiever I've proceeded to work for and receive several real estate designations: Certified Residential Specialist, Graduate Realtor Institute, Seniors Real Estate Specialist. Currently working on the Certified International Property Specialist and then the Eco-Broker designation. I told you I was a bit of an over achiever! In the long run though, I know my additional knowledge benefits you - my clients and friends.
I'm great at seeing the big picture, and ideas - I've got a million of them. Can and do look for the practical as well as the potential in a situation. Geographically I've lived in South Dakota, Germany, Montana, Minnesota, Washington, DC and have returned to Portland my home town.
Well, enough! I said snapshot, you got a montage!
