About Me

I joined Hopkins, Jelsing and Tri in October 1990 and became a partner on January 1, 1996. I have extensive experience which includes trials, hearings, mediations, and arbitrations.


My practice centers on family law which includes assisting clients with dissolution, paternity, child support, and parenting plan actions.

I grew up in Southern California, Virginia and Idaho. I graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelors of Science in 1985 and moved to Tacoma, Washington to attend University of Puget Sound School of Law, now Seattle University School of Law.

I am a Volunteer Family Law Attorney with Snohomish County Legal Clinic and I enjoy volunteering regularly in my community schools. I have lived in Snohomish County since 1990.
