Her in-depth understanding of each unique neighborhood and how to properly position buyers to win in today's competitive market make her a force to be reckoned with at the negotiation table.

Introduced to a love for adventure by her mother (who just so happened to be the first Twin Team assistant), Jennifer passion for travel can only be rivaled by her passion for a good ol’ fashioned house hunt. When not managing the Twin Team’s incredible sphere, Jennifer can be found escaping to the Oregon coast to get sandy and salty with her new rescue pup Tater or checking travel destinations off her bucket list.

Director of Operations
As the operational hub of the business, Missi handles all administrative tasks from pre-list to market and contract to close for each client and home sale. Her impressive attention to detail and ability to keep each transaction on time and on track is invaluable to the team. Missi is not only passionate about homing people, she’s also dedicated her adult life to matching rescue dogs with deserving homes, too! Beginning her dog-loving journey in high school by volunteering for local rescues and hosting adoption events, her passion for dog rescue was reignited when she adopted her canine soul-mutt Olive in 2015. When "One Tail at A Time- Portland” came to be, Missi hopped on board shortly thereafter to help in any way possible and hasn’t looked back since. Today, Missi is an associate board member, adoption counselor, supply coordinator/manager, a revolving foster mama, on strategic planning committees, and spearheads the organization’s newsletter. Over the last couple of years, Missi and her partner have fostered nearly 20 dogs with assistance from their favorite mutt, Olive.
Transition Specialist - Seniors on the Move
Known for her big heart and quick wit, Jennifer is our trusted transition specialist for the Seniors on the Move program - a division of the Twin Team focused on helping clients making late-in-life transitions out of life long homes. After advising many of our senior clients to consider intergenerational housing solutions to their growing care needs, Jennifer made the choice to take her own advice and built an Additional Dwelling Unit (also known as an ADU or Mother in Law suite) in her back yard last year. This space will eventually serve as a home for Jennifer’s aging parents (and in the meantime, provides an excellent housing option for her daughter while she attends college). Jennifer’s empathetic warmth and genuine investment in helping family friends and aging clients is unparalleled and invaluable to our team. If it were up to her, she’d happily build ten more ADUs for clients who struggle to keep up their home but aren’t quite ready for assisted living. As an active environmentalist, adoring mother, and politically savvy citizen, Jennifer is one cool cat who loves nothing more than quality family time.
