She has worked for Des Moines Escrow, Inc. since it opened in 1995. Tina is a native Washingtonian and she takes advantage of most everything that the great Pacific Northwest has to offer. Along with spending time with her family and friends she is involved with leadership and volunteerism in her community, childrens’ schools and church.
