About me

I was licensed to practice law in OR in 2003, and as of 2015, my Oregon license is inactive so I can be at home with my 3 young children.  I was licensed to practice in WA in 2008 and plan to inactivate my WA license in 2016.  I hope to return to the practice of law part time in 3-5 years.   I grew up in Tucson, AZ, where I graduated with a BA in Psychology and Sociology from the University of AZ.  While there, I was a volleyball coach and referee, and waited tables to pay my way through school.  After undergrad, I moved to the northwest for law school and have been here ever since.  After 20+ years in the hot desert sun, the rain is actually a nice change!  My basic life model is to live by the golden rule, and I try to do right by the people I know.  I think most people who know me would say I have a lot of integrity.
