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.
