“My father created Mountain West Studios in 1980. He was passionate about photography, a pioneer in creating innovative products and services for schools, and committed to producing quality photography at affordable prices. We are proud to have evolved his legacy into the incredible leading-edge photography company Mountain West Studios is today.”

I absolutely love working with people – both in sales and in customer service, and joined the Mountain West team in 2012. For fun, I spend as much time as I can with my husband, dog, cat and horses. I ride and compete in Dressage and Hunter/Jumpers. I also enjoy wakesurfing and snowboarding and love the Okanagan lifestyle!

I've worked with Mountain West for over 28 years, both as our Customer Service Manager and now as our Senior Accounts Coordinator. Over the years I've been with MWS, I've spoken with customers and school administrators, many of whom I've developed friendships with. That has been the most rewarding part of this job for me...building and maintaining relationships.
