Born on the Island of Taiwan and immigrating to Orange County, CA when 2 years old.  So blessed to have grown up in the 70s and 80s in Orange County.  Disneyland was and still is my family's happy place. 


Proudly sworn in as a U.S. Citizen in the 80s with my parents and little brother.  Also was so proud to serve in the US Navy with bootcamp beginning in Orlando, Florida Naval Training Center shortly after graduation from San Gabriel High School.


After completing my enlistment with an honorable discharge from the US Navy, I continued as a work study for the Veterans Hospital in San Diego radiology department.

Shortly afterwards, I was hired to a national Health Plan in San Diego.  


Growing from the ground up at the organization enabled me to gain wonderful work experiences from member services, Provider Contracting, Network Development and rising through the organization to become a National Health Plan Account Manager with frequent national travels.  


After birth of my daughter, made the decision to transition over to entrepreneurship successfully running an import/export and internet business that included my E bay Power-seller store and Amazon merchant with 100% positive feedback.  After many successful years running the internet and import/export business, made the transition back to the insurance industry.  Working as a successful agent for a large insurance carrier, I made my transition back to business owner of my own insurance agency to ensure that my team provides our best client servicing possible.  With my agency's growing stability and success, I have been able to explore volunteer roles in my community with Hesperia Centennial Lions club acting as Secretary as well as an adviser to Hesperia Centennial Leo Club junior members.  


Our Hesperia Centennial Club mission has been to support special needs events in our local community so naturally evolved to working alongside Simply Rockn' It Events by Dana Hernandez.  This work subsequently led to volunteering as Secretary for the new Rock'n Our Disabilities Foundation founded by Dana Hernandez.  Looking forward to the exciting activities and projects that we can bring to our high desert community through our work with the foundation.

Amanda Davis - Board Member

Amanda Davis has been actively involved in the High Desert community for over nine years. Her desire to be involved lead her to become apart of Apple Valley High School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) program.  Her success in this program lead her to be voted as the FFA Chapter Secretary during her senior year of high school. 


This allowed her to serve the community even further with various events, which gave her the chance to establish cherished relationships, including those of the Junior Fair Board. Shortly thereafter, she pursued this relationship further by joining their board. Through the Junior Fair Board, she developed a relationship with Victorville Motors and continued to serve the community through Victorville Motor’s marketing department; where she served on their events crew and continued to press forward in establishing relationships throughout the High Desert community. 


Amanda realized that she had a desire to care for and encourage young people with disabilities when she had the opportunity to fill the position of Disabilities/Special Education Para-educator. She developed a love for each and every child she came in contact with and was able to help. 


After two years of interacting with these children, she decided to pursue this love and passion further by going back to school at Western Governors University and majoring in Special Education. When she heard of the Rock’n Our Disabilities Foundation, she couldn’t have been more thrilled and felt an urge to become involved and apart of their programs and everything they had to offer. She feels it will not only widen her knowledge of those with disabilities but also help her understand and care for those of the community, her present students, and future students.  


Bruce Jarvis - Board Member

 Hi. I'm Bruce, a Realtor with CENTURY 21 Desert Rock. For many years I have had businesses in both the housing and insurance industries, which have provided me with knowledge , experience, and real insights into what is important to sellers and buyers of real estate and all the businesses connected to a real estate transaction. For the past 15 years I owned a Farmers insurance agency with two offices--one in the city of Barstow and, the main office, in the city of Hesperia. 


This has allowed me to know those areas very well.After selling my insurance agency in January 2018, starting a career in the real estate industry, especially with Century 21, seems to be a natural fit since I was a real estate agent with Century 21 in the past. Understanding the housing, escrow, insurance, home inspection and appraisal industries and also state and local building codes have provided me with the knowledge to facilitate a smooth process in the transaction of real estate.Over many years, I have developed among my peers a reputation of honesty, trust, integrity, professionalism, and commitment to work for the best interests on behalf of my clients. I bring to the real estate industry the same attributes, skills and traits. 


I work well with clients since I believe in the principle of "do unto others what you would have them do unto you." My goal is to create a pleasant experience so that you can achieve your desires.In 1972, after an honorable discharge from the United States Air force, I became a southern California resident and settled in the Inland Empire area. During this time my wonderful wife and I raised four sons who have now started their own families. We are blessed to have nine beautiful grandchildren. 

My wife and I were actively involved (and still are) in Christian ministry and community projects. After achieving a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Divinity (MDIV) degree, in 1991 my wife and I moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania so that we could pursue post-graduate studies. 


During the time I worked as a high school teacher and served as a senior pastor in the Philadelphia area for eleven years. Upon the birth of our first grandchild we relocated back to California in 2002 and settled in Hesperia, California.I currently carry the following professional designations:

  • National Association of Realtors
  • California Association of Realtors
  • Member of the National Notary Association
  • Public notary agent
  • Certified signing notary agent
  • President of the Hesperia Centennial Lions Club
  • Licensed property and casualty insurance agent
