Moved to Yamhill, Oregon at the age of 10. Went to Yamhill Grade school. Graduated Y-C class of 1983. Went to work for Diane's Foods in McMinnville for 7 years. Moved to McMinnville from Yamhill. Than went to work for Les Schwab tire centers in McMinnville and Portland for the next 7 years. Next I went to work at Valley R.V. outside of McMinnville for the following 10 years. Had a house built in Lafayette. When Valley R.V. closed its doors I went to work for Waterdog R.V. for the next 7 years. After that I started my own business Heckuvadeal Realities. turning houses into homes. Which led into getting my Realtor license and working with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Northwest. They align with me perfectly in their beliefs on what is important. Which is taking care of people. Making long lasting bonds and being there for your clients/friends.
