I'm a mother to six boys and Gigi to a grandson. My oldest is 32 and my youngest is 16. My grandson is 5 and full of energy! I was born and raised in Bend, where I have lived my whole life. I worked my way through beauty college at the very young age of 18 and was a licensed hairdresser for many years, but I wanted to do something different.
In 2004, single with all those boys at home, I found myself back at college to become a CPA. Edward Jones found me in 2006 and I fell in love with the firm. I still love numbers and analysis, but love working hands on with clients more than anything. I started as a branch office administrator and after more than 10 years in that position I become a financial advisor.
I enjoy helping people establish financial goals, whether saving for or living in retirement, education savings for children or grandchildren, paying off debt or saving for a big purchase. I start with where you are today and then show you whether you can get there doing what you're doing. If not, then I like to show you that it is possible and how you can get there, then partner with you the rest of your life to help keep you on track. I am passionate about seeing people reach their goals - especially being able to retire and have money to enjoy retirement. I'm loyal and dedicated. If I don't know the answer, I will not quit until I find it.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a son in the Army, a couple in college and one still at home. I love being involved and watching them grow into young men. I love spending time with my grandson. I like to bake and quilt in the colder months and in the warmer months you will most likely find me out camping somewhere by a lake in my 25-foot trailer.
If I can answer any questions or concerns you have about your goals or the markets, please don't hesitate to connect with me. There is always no charge to talk and no obligation to do business.
