I'm the C.O.O. of the Bend Soap Company. Prior to Bend Soap Co. I worked in personal finance, marketing, and spent several years as a pastor at Sound City Bible Church. Though my background is quite diverse, the common thread through it all has been that I take the vision for the organization and then developed the systems and teams to make the vision come to life.
I grew up in Oregon, completed my undergraduate degree at Oregon State University, later returning for a Master Degree in Business & Rhetoric. I worked in marketing in Chicago and Portland before starting Sprout Tours 6 years ago. I currently enjoy volunteering as a Board Member for the Oregon Humane Society and serve as Secretary for the Portland Relocation Council. My greatest joy in life is watching my almost 4 year old daughter Preston Grace grow up with my husband Ben, we work hard to continuously get into trouble as much as we can while over spoiling our dog Ollie and cat Sammy.
