I was born and raised in Keizer and was part of a family business that was founded in 1958. In 2015, I founded KARM Safety Solutions (a Keizer business) to help train and educate employees on construction safety and also help companies stay current with new industry regulations. I have served on the Keizer Chamber board as both a member and past president.
I currently serve as Vice President at the Keizer Community Foundation. I am also a board member on the Salem Contractors Exchange and Vice Chair for the American Society of Safety Professionals Santiam Chapter.
I volunteer teach ladder safety and fall protection at the Salem Keizer CTE school, and I also volunteer to perform safety training for apprenticeship workers at IEC Oregon in both Salem and Portland.
