Claudeia, Housekeeping Coordinator
Housekeeping Coordinator Claudeia has worked for Bennington Properties since 2014. She joined the Bennington team after working in the fast food industry, specifically at MacDonald’s. She brings her attention to detail and a desire to help others to work everyday.
Claudeia grew up in Scappoose, northwest of Portland, under the watchful eye of Mount Rogers and beside Scappoose Creek. She grew up the baby of the family, with five older bothers and two older sisters. They lived in Scappoose until Claudeia was 14, eventually moving to Portland for her parents job.
“I remember as a child, fishing in Scappoose Creek. I was probably around six years old. All of my older brothers and sisters had real fishing poles and I was using a kids one. But, I out-fished them all day long! That’s one of my favorite memories as a child.”
Claudeia still loves to fish, as well as hunt. Luckily, she has lived in La Pine for the last seven years, where fishing and hunting opportunities are abound. Claudeia currently lives with her two dogs, a black Labrador Retriever and a German Shepherd.
Summer is Claudeia’s favorite Central Oregon season, as it makes the rivers and lakes accessible for some fun. She recommends heading towards Pringle Falls and the Fall River Campground if you’re looking for a cool summer activity. The trail is an easy stroll down to the river, where the three feet of water makes spotting fish easer. There are downed trees to walk across and the moss makes for a picturesque scene. And, of course, don’t forget to check out the beautiful views.
When not working at Bennington, Claudeia admits she is huge music lover. She appreciates all kinds of music, from the 1930’s to today. Her list of favorites is quite eclectic, including Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, and Metallica.
“I love working with everyone at Bennington. It’s like one big happy family.”
A Good Day At the Lake
It’s no secret Central Oregon has been graced with an abundance of alpine lakes. Here are some of Claudeia’s suggestions on how to have a good day at the lake.
1. Swimming - There’s no better way to cool off under the hot sun than taking a dip in the glacier-fed lake.
2. Fishing - Our local lakes are filled with many species of trout, land-locked salmon and largemouth bass.
3. Relaxing - Sometimes the best part of a lake is simply hanging out next to one.
