Born and raised in the Seattle area, Dayle began her insurance career in 1976 for Great American Insurance Co. in Seattle. When they moved their operation out of state in 1988, she took a few months off before coming to work for Pilkey-Hopping & Ekberg in 1989 as the computer coordinator. Over the years her position has also evolved into the office manager which gives each day a nice variety. Dayle is married and enjoys RVing, gardening, fishing, and hiking with her husband. Since the children are grown and out of the house, they now make room for a Bengal cat and a Chocolate Lab, both who like to travel with the couple. Their RV journeys take them anywhere from the desert to the mountains to the ocean. Working with children and youth is Dayle’s passion. She volunteers for the Awana ministry in her hometown of Cathlamet. Dayle likes to collect lighthouses and has a goal to visit all the lighthouses on the U.S.A. west coast.
