DeEsta Kuehn has lived in Coos Bay since 1995. She joined the South Coast Shopper a year later, and became the Classified Ad Department Manager a year after that. She is an active member of her church, The Harbor AG, and has a heart for both US and world missions. Her favorite pastimes are spoiling her husband, grandson, and cat, spending time with her kids, and vacationing. As a South Coast Shopper Classified Ad Specialist, her absolute favorite thing is hearing that an ad she helped write was successful and the item for sale SOLD, the businesses schedule is all booked, or the event was a success :)
