I left the East Coast in 1986 and traveled west to Gold Beach in my covered wagon, actually a 24ft u-haul, with two small children in tow. The natural beauty and friendly people made it easy to call Gold Beach home and raise 5 children.
I received a BA in Biology in 1985, and a MA of ED in 2010 with a Certificate in Education for Sustainability.
Over the years I have been involved in many organizations and held many jobs, always focused on serving my community: Victims Assistance Coordinator for Curry County, Founder of The Oasis Shelter Home for battered women in Gold Beach, Owner of Natures Organic Market, Substitute Teacher K-12 Central Curry School District, Ameri-corp Member/ ASPIRE Program Coordinator and Program Developer Gold Beach High School, Soccer coach and board member of the Gold Beach Youth Soccer Association, Cub Scout Den Mother, committee member and Pack Master, founder of the Gold Beach Farmers Market and current Gold Beach Chamber of Commerce Board member.
I currently teach GED classes for SouthWestern Oregon Community College in Gold Beach and own a local business, Curry Estate Liquidation.
Becoming a Real Estate Broker, Listing & Selling Agent with Century 21 Agate Realty in Gold Beach, was a logical step in expanding my Estate Sale Services in Curry County. My business is now able to handle entire estates including real property. I host estate sales, sell individual items including vehicles and stage houses for sale to enhance their presentation. It is very convenient for my clients to have one person handle their entire estate sale needs.
