I grew up in Southern Oregon and graduated from Oregon State University where I majored in Human Development and Family Science. Go Beavs! For the first five years out of college I taught preschool. After being in the Portland area for a few years, my husband’s job took us to Minnesota which is where I first got into the world of employee benefits at a large agency. While there, I began as an Administrative Assistant then worked my way up to be an Employee Benefits Analyst. While in the analyst role, I learned an incredible amount and cannot wait to use that knowledge in my new role here at Leonard Adams!
Now that my husband and I (along with our fur children Quinn and Bo) are back in the Pacific Northwest, we have become homeowners so most of our time is spent doing stuff around the house and exploring our new neighborhood! In my free time I also enjoy playing tennis, hiking, traveling, and rooting for the Blazers whenever they’re playing. While I loved the experience of living in the Midwest, I am extremely happy to be back in the Pacific Northwest.
