Born and raised in Spokane Washington I have been a Washington State resident virtually all my life. I graduated Cum Laude from Eastern Washington University with a B.A. in both Psychology and Criminal Justice. I then attended Seattle University School of Law where I obtained my J.D. After attending school in Seattle my husband of 16 years and I decided to make Western Washington our permanent home.
I’m all about family. I have two beautiful children and spend a great deal of time with my family. We love to camp, hike, bowl, practice archery and participate in other activities together. I also enjoy sewing, cross stitch and reading. In addition, I am an advocate of early childhood education. I have volunteered in both of the children’s preschools, as well as their grade schools and continue to volunteer at every opportunity.
