Getting to know Doris
It was not a direct journey from Montana to Hawaii, but once here, Doris has made Hilo her home for over 32 years. Doris and her husband, Dick raised two sons here in this community.
Doris enjoys swimming and reading books. A former teacher, she believes you can take the teacher out of the classroom, but not from books and continual learning.
Community service is a priority for Doris. She has helped establish a day care center, volunteered for United way and was a community mediator. She uses those same mediation skills to negotiate successful results for her clients.

Doris started her own firm in 1978. It was selected in 1979 by Better Homes and Gardens to be the network's first member firm in the islands. Doris is the only member of the Hawaii Island Board of Realtors to be twice honored as Realtor of the Year.
