I have served on the EPGCHA board for the past 2 years. I fully understand the existing and future challenges of our HOA and want to continue to represent our community in any capacity that I can. We have many challenges ahead of us in our HOA and I would like to continue to help solve those challenges on behalf of everyone in our community. My family lives in Eagle Point because we love the area and share the same values and interests as our family, friends and neighbors living in the community. I want our community to continue to be friendly, clean and safe. I also want the Golf Course Community to continue to grow in a positive way and for home values to increase for homeowners over time.

I am originally from Pasadena, California. I come from a very large blended family and have 10 siblings. I landed in Grants Pass at the age of 8 after my step dad retired from the Navy and lived there until I graduated from Grants Pass High School. I moved to Las Vegas to attend UNLV and pursue a degree in criminal justice. I remained in Las Vegas until the age of 26 when I missed the Rogue valley and decided I wanted to plant my roots here. I currently work for Lithia Motors as a supervisor of a nationwide project centered around digital retailing and online vehicle purchasing. 4 years ago, I met my husband Brian Berg through work and last September we got married. I am an avid reader of detective novels. I love the New York Yankees, my two beautiful pugs – Roscoe and Lola - and travelling with my husband. I am so blessed that Brian and I found our forever home in the Eagle Point Golf Community and since we moved in back in February, we have loved every minute of it.
My name is Philip Brooker and I recently relocated to Eagle Point and became a home owner in our community. I am interested in volunteering my time to help better our community. A short background on me. I have successfully managed automotive dealerships for over 20 years. We consistently outpace the market due to strong plans and processes and being at the forefront of technologies. In my personal time I have sat on the board of directors for community redevelopment organizations, a zoo board of directors, and school board foundations. I am also a long-standing Rotarian. I believe in smart financial planning and bettering my community and neighborhood.
My name is Maria Shimizu. I would like to be considered as a candidate for the volunteer board of directors for the EPGCHA.
The following is a short bio about my motivations, and life experiences.
I relocated to Southern Oregon in April, 2017, after living in Kaneohe, Hawaii for 35 years. A few of the many reasons I moved to Southern Oregon, was to be with my love, Bruce, to live near my good friend Linda, and to live in the same state as my son, Chase (currently attending Oregon Institute of Technology in Portland). Falling in love with the Eagle Point Golf Course Community, I purchased my home over a year ago, and have met a number of neighbors, whom I consider as good friends. I am motivated to learn more about how our home owners association works and to seek out ways to improve. After receiving the email from Tiffany, announcing 6 openings on the board, I decided I should volunteer and participate in the home owners association process of our great community, as I feel I have had many life experiences to contribute.
Currently, I am working as an Oncology Certified Nurse at ARRMC and at Hematology Oncology Associates. My primary job is in the Radiation Oncology department at Asante, where our team of nurses provide patient support, assessments, and education. I work 3 to 4 shifts/month at Hematology Oncology as an Infusion nurse, administering chemotherapies, immunotherapies, and supportive treatments.
Previous to moving to Oregon, I worked at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii on an Oncology/Telemetry nursing unit for 10 years. At Queens, I served on multiple committees: Patient Safety Fellowship, Nursing Unit Safety and Fall Committees, and our Nursing Unit’s Magnet Committee in preparation for certification and re-certification.
Previous to my career in the medical field, I was an international flight attendant for 26 years (7 years with Pan American World Airways, and 19 years with United Airlines). My airline career has allowed me to live in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, and Hawaii. This former career has also provided me with a focus on safety and a broad perspective of different cultures.
