About Me

Every day I get to come to an office and work with great people doing what I love to do. My professional life is very satisfying, but it's not everything. I'm happily married (35 years as of 2014), with six children and thirteen grandchildren. I garden with perennials and vegetables. I volunteer at my church and in the BSA. My time as a member of the Kennewick City Planning Commission including a term as its chairman taught me much about the City I live in. Three years on the Discipinary Board of the Washington State Bar Association allowed me to learn from great fellow lawyers and citizen members who were examples of great public servants. I am grateful to live in the Northwest and the Tri-Cities.
