A graduate of Linfield College and a native Oregonian, I have over 20 years of business experience in the Portland area.

I have six years appraisal experience. The first two years I worked as a staff appraiser with two regional banks in the Portland area, appraising a variety of properties & value ranges for property located throughout the Portland metropolitan area including property located in Vancouver, Washington.

The last four years, I have been an independent fee appraiser, appraising property located in the Portland metropolitan area and along the Oregon coast. The completed appraisals have been used for sales, refinancing, removing mortgage insurance, and establishing property values for estates and divorces. In addition, I have testified as an expert witness.

I am a member of the following professional organizations:

The National Association of Real Estate Appraisers (NARA)
National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers (NAIFA)
