My interest in real estate is the driving force behind my professional and educational development.
After graduating from UCLA and moving to Portland, I worked as a property information specialist and later escrow assistant at a national title insurance company. My interest in the laws that govern real estate led me to Lewis and Clark Law School where I took many real property and business law related courses. After passing the bar, Capital Pacific’s blended transaction director and financial analyst role was a perfect fit for my real estate interest. After four years as a transaction director and analyst, I now work as a broker business manager.

What's the best thing about working at Capital Pacific?
Hands down, it’s the people and culture of the company. The real estate work brought me to Capital Pacific, but the culture and the people keep me here. We have a group of dedicated professionals consistently reaching beyond the status quo to seek improvement. As a company, we set aside valuable time to reflect on our failures and successes, and to continually improve our collective best practices. When we take that needed time for self-reflection, we have fun with the work and each other. I highly respect and enjoy working with this team of people.
How do you approach client relationships?
In my personal life, my favorite hobby is reading stories. In my professional life, I like to hear the stories of our clients and the properties they own. When we truly listen to our clients, learn what brought them to their current situation, and hear their short and long-term goals, we can tailor our recommendations to reflect their needs. When we listen to the story of a property, we’re better able to explain and sell it to prospective buyers. By paying attention to the story that got our clients here, we’re able to find solutions that align with our clients’ ambitions.
What do you do to recharge your batteries outside of the office?
I love reading to my three year old, playing board games with my husband, going for spa or hot springs retreats with my girlfriends, and trying new delicious restaurants in Portland with just about anybody.
