I have 25 years experience as a sales, marketing and general operations manager for large organizations throughout the Inland Northwest. I began my sales career with Cox Cable in 1984 and ultimately earned the position of Manager of Spokane Area Operations for PRIMESTAR where I managed the launch of PRIMESTAR direct broadcast satellite service to the Inland Northwest market, growing the business to a $5.1 million operation, serving 8,000 customers, prior to its subsequent sale to DirecTV in October 1998

Later I leveraged my experience with Cox Cable and PRIMESTAR into a decade long engagement with Comcast Spokane serving as their Commercial Sales Manager from 1999-2009. During my tenure with Comcast I gained valuable experience conducting successful contract negotiations with businesses ranging in size from startups through Fortune 500 companies.

I volunteer as an instructor and guest speaker for The Community Colleges of Spokane Center for Workforce and Continuing Education and the Avista Center for Entrepreneurship jointly created and delivered Small Business Boot Camp. The 8-week evening program provides an accelerated, non-credit curriculum specifically designed to help prepare entrepreneurs for launching their businesses as well as helping existing businesses grow and be sustainable. The Small Business Boot Camp fills a necessary education gap in the community for individuals who are interested in learning the skills and tools necessary to start and/or grow their business.

I am a licensed real estate broker and registered franchise broker in the State of Washington.

I am an avid distance runner, cyclist and PSIA certified cross country ski instructor.
