Steve Ticknor DirectorI was born and raised in the Portland, Oregon area and lived there for my whole life prior to moving to Lake Havasu. I was active in Boy Scouts during high school and obtained my Eagle Scout award.
 
I attended Oregon State University for two years then had the opportunity at 20 years old to run my own newspaper dealership which I did for about 16 years. After that I decided to get into real estate where I began as a solo agent, eventually hired my mother as my full time assistant, and then grew to having my own team.

I am a volunteer at the Havasu Community Health Foundation office and a committee member of the Cancer Association of Havasu since 2016.  I was recently voted in as the new 2017 director of the Cancer Association.  In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and have been a survivor since.  I will bring that personal experience to my work with the Cancer Association.  My goal is to continue the great programs offered by the Cancer Association and maybe create some new ones! 

I retired after 25 years from Aetna Healthcare in Seattle Washington. My husband Mark & I were then able to follow my “snowbird” parents to Lake Havasu City where we fell in love with the community & weather.
