1.  What was your first job in the timeshare industry?  
After graduating from the University of Washington and planning to go to law school, my father convinced me to come to work for the company he co-founded in the industry, Vacation Internationale, where I worked in the marketing department doing a variety of marketing and sales support roles.  

2.  What is the greatest lesson you've ever been taught in business?  
First impressions are everything, so get it right and make it right from the beginning.

Hands down...the American & Canadian San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest.  

4.  If you could change one thing about timeshare, what would it be?

Most of the time...Blue.
