I grew up in Kirkland WA, and currently live in Bothell WA. I have a daughter who lives in California and a son who lives with me. My girlfriend and I have 3 dogs, a cat and 12 pet fish. In my personal time, I enjoy taking our boat out into the Puget Sound, motorcycling, mountain biking on the trails and sitting out on the deck relaxing at night looking at the stars. What I want to see myself accomplish is to travel around the United States, Europe and Asia on my motorcycle. I started at Eastside in June of 2000 as a mentorship program to buy the business from the founder Ralph Townsend. In May of 2007, we took over ownership. My favorite part of my job is seeing our employees grow. From learning new things and being able to implement them to a customer and to see our employees enjoy their personal time with their families and have a good life/work balance. I look forward to the journey and am grateful for all the people who have gotten Eastside to the point we are at and where we will go.
I’m a Northwest native, born and raised in Washington. I’ve been with Eastside Exterminators since 1988. My education is from the great “school of hard knocks”. I absolutely love my job; I enjoy all the hard-working, passionate people I get to work with every day. Dear to my heart is our rodent program – it’s been all blood, sweat and tears in the making. I believe in one thing: solve the customer’s problem!
What do I do in my off time? I love anything outdoors from golfing, camping and hiking to traveling the United States and different vacation destinations.
I started with Eastside in January 2017 in Accounts Receivable and was promoted into the Accounting Manager role in July 2018. Before coming to Eastside, I spent seven years managing a veterinary office and seven years in construction accounting. I was born and raised in East Texas, and move to Seattle from Dallas in 1995 for a job opportunity. I love reading and spending time with friends and family. I have found a home at Eastside because we care about what we do and how it affects the lives of our customers and employees. From the top down, the same Core Values are carried throughout the company!
Chief Operations Officer (COO)
I moved to Seattle from my hometown Denver Colorado in 2013. I quickly fell in love the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I am proud to call it my home. My education includes Early Childhood Education and Business Administration. I have enjoyed a long Career in Business Management including owning and running my own business. I was also privileged to serve on several non-profit boards that allowed me to contribute to the community I lived in. Eastside Exterminators has afforded me the opportunity to see a different side of Pest Control that focuses on complete home protection and customer centered services. Every day is exciting at Eastside, working with a team of passionate people that I consider family. When I am not at Eastside in the summer, you will find me anywhere near the water. I enjoy lake Washington and all of the beautiful rivers that we are so fortunate to have here. In the winter I enjoy bowling on a company league, visiting Leavenworth for both October fest and Christmas festivities. I believe in making every day count and appreciate working for a company that cares about family, both our customers and employees alike. “Our family protecting families since 1969”
Service Route Manager
Originally from the Midwest, but I’ve lived here for over 25 years.
I’ve been in the pest control industry for over five years and in that time I’ve done commercial sales, run residential routes, and now I have the privilege of leading our team of Pest Management Professionals. I enjoy helping others succeed and being part of a great family here at Eastside. Outside of work, I enjoy day trips to new destinations in search of new adventures, both big and small. I hope to start traveling internationally one day soon.
I was born in El Salvador. I came to the US in 2001 to live with my dad for the first time after 12 years of being apart. I love spending time with my family especially my six-year-old daughter, I especially enjoy teaching her Spanish songs. I like my job because it gives me the opportunity to help lead a very hard working team, which I am very proud of. My favorite sport is soccer and I also enjoy motor sports. My current mission is to bring my mom to the US and once done I will be able to say I’m complete in having my daughter, wife, dad and my mom very close to me, they are my life.
Outside Sales Manager
Whether it’s a sunrise hike or a jog in the rain, waking up early is vital to jump-starting my day. I live to create memories with my friends and my puppy. Frequent road-trips provide an opportunity to get outside of my comfort zone while experiencing all that the northwest has to offer. At Eastside, I’m part of an organization which is fueled by passion. I’m privileged to lead an incredible team and thankful for the platform I’ve been given to serve our customers. I hope that my ideas have a positive impact, and that I give enough back so that the world is a better place because I lived.
Inside Sales Manager
I started with Eastside Exterminators in February of 2018 as the leader of a great marketing team. My professional background includes web development and online/offline marketing leadership for a variety of industries around the western U.S., including higher education (www.western.edu), ski resorts (SkiCB.com), automotive, travel/destination resorts, entertainment/international rock concert lighting, luxury electronics, automotive (www.lexus.com, www.toyota.com/parts) and more. Originally from Texas, my husband, daughter and I have lived in Colorado, Southern California, Northern California, and now beautiful Sammamish, Washington! We moved to the Seattle area so my husband could take his dream job with Microsoft. When I'm not pouring over our marketing data and dashboards I love golf, sailing, skiing, horses, dogs, cooking, writing, all things outdoors (except bugs), dangerously addictive video games and anything remotely techy or nerdy. I absolutely love my team/family here at Eastside Exterminators and am honored to have been given the opportunity to help make a difference for our company and our customers!
I was born in the big sky state of Montana. My family and I moved to Spokane Washington when I was in 6th grade when my father took a job with Boeing. My father was injured on the job when I was in high school and was considered disabled. I began working as a dental assistant after school and during the summer to help support my parents and two younger sisters and my plans for college were put on hold. Several years later after my daughter was born I started my own business as a licensed day care provider which is where I met Alex and Deanna when they enrolled their children in my daycare! I enjoy the customer service aspect of my job the most. The great people I work with and for make my job even more enjoyable. Someday I would love to go to Egypt and visit the pyramids. This was my Mom’s dream that she was never able to attain. During my time away from work I enjoy spending time with family and friends and watching classic black and white movies—I believe I was born in the wrong era!!
