I grew up along the Wasatch Front in the beautiful state of Utah, but for the better part of my life have been in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest. I am a Washington State Cougar, but don’t hold that against me. I have been working in the commercial & consumer finance industries for more than 16 years specializing in customer service, collections, asset management, bankruptcy and litigation. I have managed teams large and small and have lots of good stories to tell. I believe in building people and managing process, and that with good people, tools, technology, and the right approach you can create a competitive product and provide really excellent service.
I enjoy travelling, but my 4 (younger) kids make that a bit more challenging so at this stage in life sometimes a trip to Target is as good as it gets. I love to cook and create culinary wonders (as in “I wonder what that’s supposed to be?”). If I’m not in my office or the kitchen you’ll probably find me in my workshop ankle-deep in saw dust working on my latest project.
