Sandy Kauten, Owner/Publisher
Sandy immediately rebranded the publication to Oregon Family Magazine, and focused efforts on creating a comprehensive resource for parents and families. At 31 years strong (and counting) Oregon Family's growth and readership remain a source of pride for Sandy and the OFM team. Her advertisers are “family” and she is devoted to creating a place where "Community and Families Come Together". She has two adult children... One attends University of Michigan and her oldest lives up the hill in Bend. In her spare time she enjoys travel, fitness, food, and spending time with her annoyingly friendly canines (mentioned below).
John Haslam, Advertising Manager
Jesse Springer, Art Director
Jesse joined Oregon Family in 2003 and the master behind our masterful design. Jesse is a graphic designer and artist who lives in Eugene with his wife, two kids and three cats. When he’s not laying out the current issue or Oregon Family Magazine (or helping advertisers create awesome ads), he enjoys hiking, gardening, DIY, and playing music. He is also lead singer and guitarist for his band Daydream Derby. He and his wife have two adult children, and a furry feline or two.
Mascots & Morale Boosters - Lucy and Frank
Lucy, our sort of shy, but very ambitious Golden Doodle joined our team in April 2016. She is motivated and brightens our office every day. Frank, our youngest member, joined the team in July 2021. He is our resident greeter and very energetic goof-ball extraordinaire. He's not at all shy, ready and willing to "sit for pets" and offer ample sweetness to anyone willing to accept it. These two can often be found riding shotgun on appointments, have a strong Facebook following and continue to be one of our greatest assets. They volunteer their time here and at home, never complain, and are both very high-energy contributors.
