About me

I have represented hundreds of individuals facing marital turmoil, ranging from complex divorce litigation to the simple, uncontested divorces.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Western Washington University with minors in History and Sociology.


When away from work, I enjoy snowboarding, camping, fishing and whitewater rafting.
