Growing up on a third generation cattle ranch in eastern Oregon introduced me to land at an early age. I have always had a passion for outdoor recreation, including archery hunting, hiking, fishing and camping. This led me to Oregon State University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resources. Upon graduation from college, I married my best friend from high school. We are still happily married and raising our family in eastern Oregon.
Prior to joining the Whitney Land Company team, I worked for the United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service. I have many years of experience in ecological sciences and have used these skills to facilitate and coordinate environmental and natural resource efforts. My technical and academic background in natural resource management is complementary to these efforts. I have worked closely with landowners on an individual basis, defining goals, inventorying resources, formulating alternatives and successfully selecting alternatives that would address natural resource concerns on their properties. I have extensively worked on restoring wetlands, pre-commercial thinning, riparian planting, irrigation system improvement, wildlife habitat improvement and rangeland improvement, and have managed grazing systems and ecological site development.
I can work with you to identify specific habitat types that fulfill your goals and objectives as a seller or a buyer. I am motivated and will work hard to get your desired results. Whether it is an investment for agriculture or recreation, I can assist you with the tools necessary to evaluate the property’s resources.
I am a person who is honest, hardworking and thinks outside the box to find solutions to challenging scenarios. It is the way my brain works best! In my role as a broker for you, I believe in this quote from Abraham Lincoln, “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” That is, I will hustle with integrity and honesty to achieve the desired outcome for my clients.
