Mari Jo grew up in Douglas County, attending the local schools and later college in Eugene, before moving back to the area. She worked at the Telephone Company for 20 years and RFP for 9 years before starting at Hometown in 2008.
During that time, she and her husband raised two sons and a daughter who still live in the area. They were very involved in their kids’ school activities, field trips and sporting events for every season; a pastime she now enjoys with her grandchildren.
Mari Jo and her family love the outdoors, spending many years camping and fishing on the Upper Rogue, crabbing and clam digging at Charleston Bay, and taking in the Oregon coast at Bastendorff and Bandon. Her favorite hobbies are spending time with her kids, grandkids and friends, and the Oregon Coast is her absolute favorite place to go!
