Grants Pass is called the Gateway to the Redwoods and to the Oregon Caves. It is nestled in
the the Rogue River Valley in the mountains of southern Oregon. It was a big move for Joanne, a native Washingtonian,
but she loves it here where we have lived since 2006.
Joanne works at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads - an international seller of fine gemstone beads and
jewelry findings. She was a customer for many years and is thrilled to be working her dream job.
Denzel works at Diamond Home improvement where he gets to work with the wood he loves.
