A true Pacific Northwesterner, I was born and raised in Everett, Washington. I lived four years in Bellingham, where I completed my Bachelor's degree in Political Science with a Psychology minor at Western Washington University. I married and spent ten years in Guam, where I started my career as a Paralegal and grew my family with wonderful sons, Travis, Trevor and Drew. The Pacific Northwest drew me back, and I moved to Bainbridge Island for the exemplary school district and small town feel, and made many lifelong friendships. I have been a Senior Paralegal for a respected mid-size law firm in Seattle for two decades. The fourteen years I spent commuting to work by ferry from Bainbridge Island to Pioneer Square were very dear to me. My sons are now grown and living exciting lives of their own, and my husband and I moved to our hometown, in the charming Northwest Everett neighborhood. My work experiences have provided me a sound base for exemplary client care and case management. My husband and I spend our time between our NW Everett home, and our cliffside cottage on Hat Island, where I volunteer on the board as elected Vice President. My positive life outlook, calm demeanor while balancing a high energy schedule, extensive skill set, and capacity to meet deadlines, make me a valuable addition to your real estate needs. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. When I am not working, you can find me boating, hiking, traveling, cooking and entertaining, or playing on the Hat Island beaches with my Australian Shepherd dog, Rane.
