LaVerne’s Bio

I have chosen Spokane to be my home.  Spokane is a wonderful place to raise our family, pursue personal and business opportunities, and enjoy our natural surroundings.

In my early years I supported myself as a waitress.  I became a single mother which prompted me to find office work to support myself.   I learned that my jobs gave me skills that I could build on.  I used those as building blocks to be where I am today.   My husband (Kent) and I own and operate Access Unified Networks.  In 2010, I also obtained my MBA degree.

I have lived in the Perry District since 1983 where we raised our blended family of five children.  Our children attended Grant Elementary, Sacajawea Middle School, and Lewis & Clark High School.  Our children have blessed us with nine grandchildren (currently) and live in various parts of the country.  I’ve been active in our community as a youth group leader and drama director as well.

I served Associated Builders and Contractors as Chair in 2003, and East Spokane Business Association Chair 2010-2011.  I am currently a Board Member for Friendsview Retirement Home.

I believe that serving others and our community is an essential part of who I am and that’s why I am pursuing Spokane City Council.
