My husband and I have lived in Prineville for 17 years. I retired from the Banking Industry after 18 years, most recently working for Oregonians Credit Union. I enjoy the trails and camping in the Crook County
In addition to that, I have volunteered for the Crooked River roundup for 15 years, am the current President of the Prineville Lions, a member of the Prineville Elks and a Member of the American Legion Auxiliary.
I was an active member of the Chamber Ambassador Committee for 15 years and supported all the Prineville-Crook County Chamber events and projects.
The Prineville Chamber represents all of Crook County and its individuals, organizations and business and I feel with my volunteering and networking I am able to support the Vision and Mission of the
I grew up on a small cattle ranch in rural Southern Oregon which taught me the values of hard work, family, and a rural way of life. I made the move to Central Oregon in 1993 for all of its beauty and activities. Over the last 3 decades in Central Oregon, I have seen and experienced the incredible growth and expansion of this wonderful area. In 2018 my wife and I decided to return to a rural lifestyle in Crook County. With its diverse community, wide variety, and ever-expanding industry, the area has maintained a small-town rural feel and culture.
In 2019 after 25 years in Insurance and Investments, my wife and I decided to open DFP Financial & Consulting, a Private Wealth Management, Planning, and Consulting Firm. We completely enjoy the people, community and all Crook County has to offer. Being part of the Prineville Chamber is an important focus for us to give back to and help the business of the community.
In our spare time we enjoy our family and grandchildren; camping, riding horses and doing all that Central Oregon and Crook County offers, and fly fishing the Crooked River as often as possible.
My family has called Prineville home for several generations. Being born and raised in this amazing community, I have always felt so incredibly blessed. I strive to be an active part of the community and volunteer regularly. I am deeply involved in 4H, several youth sports programs, and have served on many other local boards and committees.
My mom and I own a small downtown boutique called Bayberry Lane. Our motto is local people supporting local people. We enjoy being able to give back and strive to love the people of Prineville well.
Being on the Chamber Board has allowed me to not only serve and express my opinions as a business owner, but also as a local who wants to foster a community that is able to adapt to change while holding on to their core values.
I am the Owner & Lead Coordinator at Firefly Events and I have been planning and coordinating events for over a decade. I also recently took on a role as a local real estate broker here in Crook County.
I grew up around southern Oregon. I made a road trip to Prineville with a cousin, on that trip I was introduced to a handsome young Prineville man that later became my husband. I love Prineville and although I wasn’t raised here over the last 16 years it truly has come to feel like my hometown.
I was working for a business that was a Chamber member and I was looking for opportunities to get involved in the community. After several years of attending Chamber functions I was encouraged to join the Ambassador team and then the Board. It has been a great learning experience and a lot of fun to be part of the Chamber both as a member and on the Board.
I love the weather in Prineville. After growing up in the valley with so many days of rain, I truly appreciated having (mostly) defined seasons. Summertime in Prineville is definitely my all-time favorite! We enjoy paddle boarding at Ochoco reservoir, swimming at the Prineville reservoir, floating the refreshing Crooked River, hiking the Barnes Butte or Chimney Rock trails and riding our ATV’s on the many OHV trails.
I was born and raised in Prineville where I graduated from Crook County High School in 2009. After that, I moved to Portland where I attended both Pacific University and the University of Western States for Chiropractic School.
After ten years, I returned to Prineville and am now an Associate Chiropractor at Slater Chiropractic.
Since moving back, I have enjoyed how close this community is and realized how much I missed all that Crook County has to offer compared to the big city. I started attending Chamber events to become more involved in our community and am excited to continue working with the Chamber as Vice President of the board.
I love spending my free time with friends and family, and enjoy getting out to explore all of Central Oregon. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, camping, kayaking and many other outdoor activities available in this beautiful area I get to call home.
