About me

I am very privileged to continue to provide family law legal services throughout Pierce and Kitsap Counties.  I welcome new cases in traditional litigation, uncontested matters, and collaborative law.  I am happy to work with clients who are local or who live in other jurisdictions/states. 


I have been practicing family exclusively since 2010 and have been practicing law in general since 2007.  When I am not at the office, I enjoy my volunteer and community work and spending time with my amazing friends and family.  


I provide one on one contact with each and every client, which allows me to deliver personally tailored and dedicated legal services.
