As a resident of Mount Vernon WA since 1966, and a Realtor since 1989, I have come to know and love this northwest area very well. Prior to my real estate career, I was the owner/operator of Susan Cooper School of the Dance (ballet, tap, jazz, etc.) from 1967 until 1985 when I sold the business to two of my students who continue to operate it as Skagit Valley Academy of Dance! Many satisfied clients will agree I live up to my motto: "You Can Depend On Me!" In addition to Skagit County, I have had numerous transactions in Snohomish, Whatcom and other Counties. Involvement in the WA State Realtor Association & the local North Puget Sound Association has been steady with several committees, especially as Chair of Professional Standards and Associations Operations and Board of Directors member, including as 1997 President of Skagit County Association. Impressive awards received are the 1993 Skagit Community Service, 1995 Skagit Distinguished Service, 1997 Skagit Realtor of the Year, 1998 WA Community Service, 1999 WA Achievement, 2001 WA Treasurer, 2012 WA Chapter CRS of the Year and 2012 NPSAR Lifetime Achievement Award.
Community involvement has included Secretary/Treasurer of the Mount Vernon YMCA Swim Team, Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Committee Member, 1998-2000 President of Skagit Cultural Center Association, 18 years on Skagit Valley College Foundation Board of Governors (1999 President) + current one year + 2005 Emeritus, 2002 Treasurer of Skagit Performing Arts Council, Northwest Ballet Theatre Board of Directors 2005 Vice-President, 8 years on Skagit Friendship House Board of Directors (2007 President), 7 years as an Ambassador + 2014 Bernie Award for Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce, actively involved member since 1966 of St. Paul's Episcopal Church.
