Juanita Carbaugh, CMCA - Managing Member
HOA Community Solutions began as a very small sole proprietorship in 2008. Initially, the plan was that we would start small and help a limited number of communities. It became clear that there was a need in the industry for a management company that would accept clients and communities of all sizes, even in the more rural areas. We filled an unexpected niche. Expanding our service area from just Pierce County, to include South King, Kitsap, Mason, and Thurston Counties to assist over one hundred Associations in the Puget Sound Region.
Over the years, our staff team has steadily grown to twenty-eight dedicated employees. Each of them holds a special place in my heart. We employ genuinely good people; who in turn have developed tremendous relationships with our community partners and we all work very hard to ensure we provide the best service possible to our clients. We are very blessed and fortunate to serve in this capacity.
As you can imagine, this is a challenging industry! Working with issues around homeownership can be contentious. We promise to always do our very best for you. We are human though, so if we make a mistake kindly forgive us and let us know how we can work together to improve.

Katie Laney - Operations Tech
I was born and raised in Southern California and a little over 3 years I ago decided that I needed change, something was missing in my life and I didn’t feel like California had what I needed. So, I took a leap a faith, and with the help of my family and friends decided that Washington was the new place my daughter and I were going to call home. Within a few months I knew I had made the right decision. I acquired a great job working for KTH Management who was hired to manage the McCormick Woods Homeowners Association, met a great man, got married, and we had our son.
I joined the HOA Community Solutions team in January 2018. I was fortunate to be promoted to a brand-new position, Operations Technician, which has not only allowed me to work from home but also allowed me to learn many new skills.

I was born and raised in Southern California. Missing something but not sure what, in 2003 I relocated to Northern California and a year later met my soulmate. We lived in Northern California for 10 years until a job promotion for my significant other brought us and our two long haired mini dachshunds Daizie and Maddie to the Pacific North West. We’ve been here 5 plus years and love exploring the nature and beauty Washington offers so abundantly.
I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled 45 U.S. states, several European countries as well as Central America. My happy place is on the water and riding two wheels along the beach coast or back roads. I also own my own wedding officiant business that I find tremendously rewarding.
Upon moving to Washington, I left the packaging industry after 23 years to explore other opportunities. From my initial interest to now, the HOA-CS family has been nothing but welcoming, gracious, abundantly positive and accepting. I look forward to this next chapter in my life and getting to know the communities I manage.
