Missoula is a great place to live and to raise a family. As a lifelong Missoulian, I recognize what we love about our community is also what has brought about growth and change throughout my lifetime. As I watch my son attend the same elementary school I once did, and see all the opportunities Missoula has provided me, I want to help assure Missoula future generations have the same opportunities to live and work in a place we all love.
I am a graduate of the University of Montana with a degree in Political Science and a Masters Degree in Public Administration. After college, I worked in housing at UM, before becoming a real estate agent. I am currently the Vice President of a statewide real estate brokerage and the Managing Broker for our Missoula market.
Being involved in our community is important to me. I am currently the President of the United Way of Missoula County Board of Directors, as well as an appointed commissioner on the Missoula Housing Authority board, and the Vice-President of the Missoula County Fairgrounds Foundation. Additionally, I attend or have previously participated in several city, county, and state committees and working groups to discuss housing issues in our communities including a working group on housing issues for the recent City of Missoula Housing Plan, A Place to Call Home: Meeting Missoula's Housing Needs.
My professional commitments have also given me the opportunity to explore housing and business issues and work with private and public sector representatives to brainstorm solutions to our housing needs.
I will update this page as I think about things that may be relevant, however, to be honest, I get uncomfortable talking about myself because I do not volunteer my time on all of these endeavors for attention. I firmly believe we all have a responsibility to share and contribute in areas we may be able to offer experience or insight. In the meantime, if you have a question about my background or bio, just ask!
