Interest in Business Law and Serving Community
I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest my whole life. I love it here. I grew up in Lake Stevens, WA, and earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Seattle. After taking a class titled “Corporations, Law and Society,” I knew I wanted to help Seattle businesses with their legal services. I came to fully appreciate the impact of business on society and how the law can shape this impact. I appreciate the relationship between business and our communities, and I am passionate about making it easier for businesses to positively impact our community.
Background in Business
I have worked for sole proprietorships, public companies, and non-profits; I currently sit on the board of a non-profit corporation. Before working in the legal field, I worked in the banking and investment industries, the food-service industry, and the technology industry (cloud-computing services). Since joining the legal industry, I have worked for a sole practitioner, a downtown firm, and volunteered for Climate Solutions, a non-profit corporation, where I researched renewable energy technologies.
I am licensed to practice law in Washington.
Interests and Hobbies
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy watching and playing sports. I play soccer and golf, and fervently follow too many sports teams: the UW Huskies, Sounders, Arsenal, and Bay Area pro sports teams. I’m also a bit of a self-professed nerd and enjoy reading about technology and developing websites. My favorite place to visit outside of the Northwest is Lake Tahoe. If you’ve never been, it’s a must-add to your bucket list.
