About me

I was born in Seattle and grew up in Puyallup.  After graduating from college in Virginia, and law school in Connecticut, I was thrilled to be able to come home to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am passionate about using the law to help business owners protect and grow their dreams, and helping individuals protect their families and preserve their hard-earned assets.
