“My original direction was architecture because of the blend between the technical and the artistic. My original employers, however, were school districts and government entities, so I found that project management with an architectural background was more fulfilling and gave me a more direct influence over client satisfaction. My motivation is the client response. I ask myself each day, ‘what is keeping my client up at night?’ I tackle those issues first each morning.
I enjoy the Oregon wineries and the Oregon Coast. I take extended weekends and often combine the experiences.”
