  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    I used to own a coffee shop in downtown Kennewick (Bad Andy's Great Coffee) and I didn't know anything about credit card processing during that time. The company I used for credit card processing would continually add hidden fees. It felt like every month I would have to call because a new fee would pop up. There were times my terminal would stop working and customer service was not helpful. I had several times where I could accept credit cards because the terminal was down. What I was paying monthly to be able to accept credit cards was so high that it made having a small business that much harder.

    I want to be able to support business owner and offer them a customize payments system that is right for their business. I want to make sure they are getting the lowest processing rate and if they feel it is right for them, eliminate those fees.

    I don't want them to struggle with processing fees chipping away at their profits, like I did.

  • Hobbies and interest
    I am an avid amateur gourmet mushroom grower. I grow oyster, shiitake, lion's mane, and wine cap mushroom. Each year I head up to the mountains with the Hubby and my dog (Koru) to hunt for morel mushrooms.

    I love gardening. I seems each spring, my garden gets a little bit bigger. I have my herb garden, veggie garden and my mushroom beds and logs.

    Traveling is like breathing for me. I have done several solo trips to Europe, Costa Rica and Indonesia as well as all over the world with friends. There is something about traveling solo that helps you to reconnect with yourself and see the world a little differently. I highly recommend you try it at least once in your lifetime.

    I played roller derby for 7 years and it was some of the best years of my life. Unfortunately, it takes a toll on the body, so I had to step away from it.
