What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?

I am willing to put up with a lot of gray days to enjoy the lush vegetation and the bright blue skies that show up after the rain goes away. I have visited and come home from many places that have extreme cold, heat + humidity, nasty bugs, dangerous animals, and tornados and each time feel fortunate that we don't have those things in abundance.

Why do you work here (at the District)?

I love helping people solve challenging problems on their working farms or rural property.

Bonus fact!

  • The property that I live on has been in my family for 100 years.
