About Me

I take an active role in resolving client issues and cases while maintaining personal and
productive relationships. I find inspiration from my desire to "make the
world a better place." Prior to practicing law I earned a
Master's degree in Public Administration from the Evergreen State
College and worked primarily in organizational design, development and
management.


 


The joy I receive from my work stems from my clients'
enthusiasm for and satisfaction with my services.
