I am an experienced and accomplished copywriter who has passionately provided copy-writing services to clients for over 5+ years. In 10+ years I have gained valuable copy-writing, social engagement, advertising design, and educational experience in a wide variety of media (web, business letters, press releases, commercial copy, SEO copy etc.). I enjoy sharing the strategic advantages to utilizing the experience of a professional copywriter.

Copywriting doesn't have to be complicated. I strive to communicate the client’s message in a language that the designated audience uses and understands. I write targeted copy for websites, landing pages, sales pages, blogs, press releases, and business letters. You are encouraged to visit my online portfolio at

I have been in the mortgage business for over 20 years.  I am experienced in all aspects of the mortgage process from origination of the loan through closing.  I have a passion to educate my clients on the best financial option for their needs.  I want them to understand the loan they are obtaining whether it be a first time home purchase or buying land and building their dream home.  I am an active member of the Sumner Rotary Club.  I enjoy spending time with my family, crafts, reading and exploring the great Northwest.

AA2 Repair and Maintenance, LLC
Scott and I (Marie) are the owners of AA2 Repair and Maintenace, LLC and have worked on hundreds of properties since starting our business. We do quality and affordable repairs and maintenance for property owners, real estate agents and private owners. We make custom made security doors, repair/replace siding, window and door installations, full interior and exterior painting, bathroom remodels, sheetrock repairs, decks, fences and many other home projects. While we are general contractors we also do a lot of small handyman type services which is how Scott initially got his start when he first started the business alone in 2009. We love working together as a team and have expaned our business to include getting our nursery reseller's license and do custom floral designs, and many custom made planters.
Shawn Boyer
Edward Jones - Shawn Boyer Financial Advisor
Financial Advisor
Early in my military career (I was only 18 at the time) I was "sold" on a mutual fund - what could be wrong with 50% load up front for the first year?  Right?  Later down the road my wife and I allowed our emotions (fear specifically) to get in the way of our retirement savings, so I moved all of our assets around with horrible consequences - 2008 affected a lot of people the same way.  Why'd I make these financial mistakes? While I was educated, I didn't have understanding.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, one of my personal requirements is to take the time to educate my clients on the strategies and investments we will be using, which in turn, helps them feel more comfortable when making decisions.  Hopefully my clients gain trust and wisdom and, when possible, pass it on to their families and friends as well.
