Doreen McKee grew up in the Philippines and Hawaii. She attended an exclusive all-girl Cath-
olic school and had childhood aspirations of becoming a nun, but high school and college changed her perspective. Doreen settled in Redondo Beach where she worked as a banker for Home Savings of America. She relocated to the Temecula Valley to open a new mortgage loan servicing branch for her company. The move was intended to be temporary, but 25 years later she’s still here, enjoying her life in Murrieta. As a single mom for the last 14 years, Doreen has successfully raised four sons and a daughter, Dino, Carmello, Daniel, Charles, and Catherine. She believes that parenting is a lifetime commitment and never misses an opportunity to tell her children that she misses them and loves them.
