Your Guide to the Pacific Northwest

The Vernon Publications Team

Our employees are our greatest asset, and are the key to Vernon Publications success. They're committed to producing quality products for the Puget Sound area. The Vernon Publications team works hard to become familiar with Puget Sound, and we think it's time to let you become familiar with them.

Debbie Brickman, Office Manager and NW Boat Travel Sales

Debbie keeps the office running smoothly while wearing many different hats. She's also the friendly voice that greets you most times on the phone (believe it or not, she's been doing that for over twenty years!) Outside of the office, Debbie likes to spend time with her family, work in her garden, and play the occasional game of golf with her husband.

Nikki Capellen, Winnemucca Sales

Nikki is the proud mother of two beautiful children; Carly 6 and Peyton 8. She enjoys spending time with her family, working in her yard, going out with friends, and of course--shopping.

Tammy Gabica, Winnemucca Sales

Tammy is one of our "Terrific Trio" of Winnemucca salespeople. She is the mother of two wonderful children, Andrew 9 and Annaleise 12. Both kids are active in afterschool activities and Tammy happily plays chauffer. (Enjoy it while you can, Tammy. They'll have driver's licenses before you know it!) In addition to spending time with her family and friends, she works out to keep her energy high and sanity in place!

Kent McKeller, Sales Department

Kent is our quiet sales guy until the conversation turns to boating. As the former owner of a San Juan Island tour guide company, he is very knowledgeable in all marine facts.

Kris Miller, Sales Department

Kris lives with her husband of 16 years, Jayden her 14 year old daughter, Carson and Landon her 7 year old twin boys, and her dog Henry. Kris is a second generation Vernon Publications employee (her Mom, Marge Lewis is also in sales). Kris loves hanging out with her family or going shopping, but if the weather is nice, you can bet she and Henry are outside enjoying every minute of it! .

Kathy Newman, Editor

As an English Major and avid reader, editing is a perfect fit for Kathy. She and her husband Don have two grown children who frequently stop by for a home made meal (a perfect example of her other passions - family and food!)

Suzy Sickles, Sales Department

Suzy is a mother of five grown children, 3 boys and 2 girls. She enjoys cooking, singing and traveling with her family and her 2 grandsons.

Trevor Vernon, Principal

Trevor has a hand in all things pertaining to design, graphics, and production, Always up for a challenge, Trevor plays soccer, bikes, and occasionally brings one of his sons or a dog to work for the day (we're not sure which provides the best workout!). These days Trevor and his wife concentrate on keeping their boys entertained.

Gene Walters, Principal

It's all about balance – and in Gene's case, that means balancing the books each month. When he's not hard at work, Gene enjoys working out, watching basketball (Go Lakers!) and getting together with friends. He is also a bit of a Beer Connoisseur and enjoys tasting local craft beers.

Janice Walters, Telephone Directory Coordinator

Janice is the taskmaster in the office. She insures the yellow page sales reps cross their T's and dot their I's. She has 2 grown children who still keep her busy. She loves to scrapbook, read and spend lots of time at the beach.
