GNS Board Member Terri Mazingo has a passion for helping people. As a Real Estate Investor and a California Licensed Real Estate Broker she’s helped countless people realize their dream of home ownership in Siskiyou County and around the state. As a board member at Great Northern Services since 2011, she has prioritized helping people in times of need and looks for creative ways to get involved.
“Terri is always there, ready to help. I’ve called upon her many times over the years, either for events or special projects, and it didn’t matter if it was outside business hours—she was always ready to lend a hand for her community,” says Bonnie Kubowitz, Executive Director of Great Northern Services, “One of the things that appealed to her about being on our board at GNS was that we serve the entire county and the majority of the work we do is helping families and communities in need.”
During Terri’s childhood, her father worked for the U.S. Forest Service and she spent her early years growing in small towns all over California, including spending a few years of her youth at the Oak Knoll Ranger Station on the Klamath River. She loved the mountain communities and returned to live in Siskiyou County in the mid-90s. As an avid traveler, she has gained a global view of community needs. “Seeing different parts of the world is eye-opening and educational,” says Terri. “And you never really get a true sense of a place until you’ve been there in person.”
In her professional life, Terri is multifaceted. She offers help and services with anything real estate related including real estate transactions, mortgage lending, property management, investment opportunities, notary services, etc. This has allowed her to interact with a broad swath of the Siskiyou County community and to see the challenges they face. She brings this insight and experience to the board helping this community service organization continue to innovate for the future. Thank you, Terri!
