Kumiko – Receptionist
Hello! I was born in Tokyo, Japan where I left a budding singing career, at age 19, to marry my American husband. We are still married after 43 years. In the first few years of living in America, I taught myself English and typing. With these skills, I went into the insurance business and within a few years became a Licensed Commercial Insurance Agent. During this period, we moved from Phoenix to San Francisco, to Seattle, then back to Phoenix. After a couple of years in Phoenix, I decided it was time to take a sabbatical back to Japan to visit my roots. I spent a year there working for three different companies, the most notable being ARAMCO Oil as a coordinator & interpreter between the American, Saudi, and Japanese executives.
Upon my return to the USA, I spent 20 years at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas as the senior Group Room Reservations Specialist. We then decided that it was time to move to our final destination, Spokane. Now I feel that my dream has come true! Living in Spokane and working with animals at the best clinic in the city! Oh, did I mention the rest of my family? I have two cats: Daisy, a senior Calico cat, and Mango, a rescue cat; and one canine companion, the very happy Zen, an over-sized Cairn terrier.
