In 1995, Cindi and her husband Mike founded Solaire Homebuilders. She performed research and led focus groups through a visioning process that later became the long-term strategy for Solaire Homebuilders. From 2006 to her retirement in 2020, Cindi worked directly with the Solaire team to lead sales and marketing for the company. Her primary role was evolving the company’s focus toward net-zero energy homes. Leading clients from their personal goals for a new house to a finished custom, healthy, energy efficient, sustainable home was the most rewarding aspect of her role with Solaire.
Today, Cindi inspires volunteers across Central Oregon, Coastal Oregon, and Northern California Rotary Clubs to serve those in need in their local communities and around the world. Rotary International added a new area of focus: “Supporting the Environment,” which is a fortunate coincidence for Cindi. She will be helping Rotary understand the significance and possible actions that will make supporting the environment a reality in local communities.
