How long have you worked in marketing?   

I’ve been with Kennedy Restoration for 1 month.  I have worked in various aspects of marketing in my professional career over the last 15 years.


What do you enjoy about working with Kennedy Restoration?

Kennedy Restoration is a family owned and operated business, and despite its tremendous growth in its 65 years in Portland Metro, it still has that small, close-knit family feel to it.  The employees are happy, which creates an environment that is contagious to our customers.  I feel blessed to work in a company that is so highly regarded in our community!


What brought you to the Portland area?

My husband (a new estimator for Kennedy) and I wanted to raise our children in an area the offered them more opportunities as they grow.  We moved from Chico, Ca to Portland in February 2015 to do just that, and we haven’t regretted it!  We love all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer for our family of 6.

What do you enjoy doing when you aren’t working at Kennedy Restoration?

I love to explore!  Whether it’s finding a new hiking trail, bungee jumping off a bridge, or simply finding a new fabulous restaurant I’m always looking to try something new.  There is no shortage of options in Portland!
