I am the Career Service Director for the Springfield Branch of Pioneer Pacific College where I have worked for over eleven years. My position encompasses many of the things that I have always enjoyed doing. I love working with students, graduates, staff, faculty and the community. I also enjoy customer service, creating and searching for opportunities and sharing in successes. I welcome the many challenges and rewards that this position provides.
I lived in Kirkland and Bellevue Washington prior to relocating back to Eugene where I was born and raised. I owned and operated a Hallmark Shop in Kirkland for ten years and during that time was an active Board member of the local Merchants Association as well as on the Board of Directors for the Kirkland Downtown Association. After selling my Hallmark Shop, I worked as a licensed real estate agent for Windermere prior to moving back to Eugene. I also worked as Student Services Director for Heavy Equipment Operators School and as Career Advisor for the Dislocated Workers Program at Lane Community College.
I enjoy hiking, long walks, trips to the beach, barbeques and dinner parties with friends and family, table tennis, playing scrabble and other board games with competitive people, watching the Oregon Ducks sports teams, and finding ‘treasures’ at estate and garage sales and selling those items on eBay.
