Over my career, I have continued to focus on agricultural real property valuation with a focus on vineyards and wineries. I also have experience with additional agricultural properties such as other permanent plantings, processing facilities, and more. I also provide portfolio valuation and reporting, as well as cost segregation studies for our capital markets clients and participants in the wine industry. My passion for appraisal began during my sophomore year at Oregon State University while taking Farm and Ranch Appraisal. Since that time, I have continued to work in the industry, while also continuing to expand my knowledge through courses at Chemeketa Community College such as Introduction to Viticulture, Introduction to Winemaking, and Winery Design and Procession. I also obtained my MAI designation in April of 2015 and am currently pursuing my AI-GRS designation through the Appraisal Institute.
I also co-wrote and instructed the Farm and Ranch Appraisal Course at Oregon State University in 2013, and have been an active advocate in her local community to promote the appraisal profession and have had multiple trainees. I received academic scholarships from the Oregon chapter in 2008 and 2010. The Oregon Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers presented me with the “outstanding student” annual award in 2006. I graduated in June of 2007 from Oregon State University with a major in Agricultural Business Management with a Marketing and Trade option and General Agriculture minor.
