Though the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California were my childhood playground, it was the diverse landscapes of Oregon that helped cultivate my love of nature. I believe every region that makes up this great state is an adventure waiting to be respectfully explored and I have been fortunate enough to visit many of Oregon’s natural wonders. This love of biodiversity and ecosystems encouraged me to pursue a BS in Environmental Science at the University of Oregon. Through my time in university, I learned valuable lessons about grit and determination during times of hardship and to celebrate the wins with a joyful heart. It’s these cultivated values that have served me well at Hearthstone Real Estate. Whether it’s learning a challenging new concept or working as a team with my wonderful co-workers I can take inspiration from the values I have seen and studied in the natural world: patience and resilience.
