I am currently employed as a Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney working in the Corporate Counsel Division of the Yakima County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. I primarly provide civil representation to the County Assessor, Auditor, Treasurer, Director of Financial Services, L.E.A.D. Taskforce, Facilities Director, as well as as serve as the Corporate Attorney for the South East Aging and Long Term Care Council of Governments which I helped to form in 2014. This entity provides very important services to the elderly and clients that need long term assistance. They serve Asotin, Benton, Franklin, Columbia, Garfield, Kittitas, Yakima and Walla Walla Counties. I work with currently six (6) County Commissioners that serve on this Board.
Previously before my current position I had the honor of serving as a Law Clerk in Yakima County Superior Court for the Honorable Judge James Hutton, Jim Lust, Michael Schwab, and Robert Hackett from 2004-2007. It was a very invaluable learning experience for me, and I did that as well as worked as a Special Deputy Prosecuting Attorney on various ad valorem property tax matters.
I have approximately 14 years of ad valorem property tax appraisal, valuation defense, and litigation experience. I served as the interim Clerk of the Yakima County Board of Equalization.
In law school I received a full ride academic scholarship to Gonzaga School of Law. While there, I received 3 CALI awards for the highest grades in various classes (Criminal Procedure, Real Estate Transactions & Environmental Law Dispute Resolution). I graduated Cum Laude from Gonzaga and top 1/3 in my law class.
I am an avid Gonzaga Bulldog basketball fan "Go Zags". I also am an avid Seattle Seahawks fan and Sonics fan. (Hopefully Seattle gets an NBA team in the near future.) I am a lifelong Yakima resident, and a proud graduate from A.C. Davis High School and Yakima Valley Community College.
