In 2014 I participated in the Edward Jones Future Leader's program and was recently appointed as a Field Trainer to help new financial advisors. My wife Angel and I have two daughters.

I remember how difficult the college application process was when I was in high school. I was overwhelmed by the number of choices, all of the different applications and what I needed to do in terms of financial aid. There are a lot of great high school counselors, but I did not have one of them. I was at the receiving end of some poor advising and it cost me time and money. (Even if you have one of the great counselors, Washington State has one of the worst counselor-student ratios in the United States.) As frustrating as my experience was, it sparked a drive in me to help other students. I decided that no matter what the arena, I wanted to go into some sort of educational advising. I worked as a private college admissions advisor for a few years and then as an international student advisor at a community college. I returned as a student to higher education and completed a Master’s degree in Education in 2012. Rather than returning to a college position, I reopened my practice as an independent college admissions advisor. I live in the great City of Mukilteo with my husband and two Golden Retrievers. I am an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo. Working with students and being involved in my local community is where I thrive.
Our family roots go back several generations in Mukilteo. I feel fortunate to have lived in this fine community for most of my life. I like the fact that everyone who visits our beautiful area wants to enjoy the same quality of life. When people do relocate here, a Real Estate Broker of 32 years, I feel proud to show them the many treasures we hold so dear. Earning my Real Estate license in 1982 and having practice full-time since 1985 allows me the opportunity to serve clients with the thing most near and dear to them: their home. I have enjoyed serving the community through coaching kids at the Mukilteo Boys and Girls Club, teaching Junior Achievement, food drives, litter and graffiti control. Other areas of interest include supporting non-profits such as KSER 90.7 radio, Amnesty International as well as financial support to several other community organizations.
