My Journey to Real Estate

Joining Windermere in Kitsap County as a broker was a homecoming for me as well as a new beginning in a familiar landscape. I grew up in this area, attending school in Bainbridge, Poulsbo and Bremerton. After graduating from Olympic High School, I was lucky enough to continue my education, as well as my athletic pursuits at Linfield College in Oregon. There I graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Studies and Economics and managed to win a NCAA Div. III National Championship for baseball. 

After college, I followed my desire to apply whatever skills and education I had acquired to benefit others. I also wanted to broaden my horizons. I found that pathway as a Peace Corps volunteer in Madagascar. I worked to share knowledge on nutrition and agriculture while living amongst the Malagasy people. It was fulfilling and exasperating but provided me with a deeper knowledge of the world and my presence in it.

Towards the end of my 3 years of Peace Corps service in Madagascar, I was recruited for the position of operations manager of a chocolate factory, Beyond Good. Since I spoke the language and was familiar with the culture, I was engaged by the opportunity to apply the first world technology of a modern manufacturer and direct the benefits back to the source of the basic ingredient of cacao. This required communication with native growers of cacao to involve them in the production process, as well as overseeing a worldwide distribution of a chocolate product with certifications for Direct Trade, Organic, NonGMO, Kosher, Vegan, and Gluten Free.  

After some time living, serving and working abroad I decided it was time to come home. As I reintegrated back into the community I grew up in, I began to realize I wanted to make a career along the lines of service I had in the Peace Corps. I wanted to be integrated and knowledgeable about this area and use this knowledge to help people foster community. Being a realtor was my way of doing this. 

I was heartened by the reception I received at Windermere and am enormously impressed by the professional skills and talent that surround me. Here I enjoy every day a career applying my passion to help people to a better future by guiding them through what is probably the biggest transaction of their life. I feel at home here at Windermere and look forward to helping you feel at home.
