I was born and raised in Seattle but I have also lived/worked in Bellingham, Portland, and Washington, D.C. and currently reside in Bremerton. I began my legal career as a receptionist at Davis Wright Tremaine, transitioning to a legal secretary shortly thereafter. After 40 years in the legal field, I retired from Carney Badley Spellman as a corporate paralegal. I have worked in nearly every area of law but prefer corporate law above all others.
I have served on the Board of Directors of NALS of Washington as its Marketing Director (2013-2015 and 2017-2018) and served on the Board of Directors of NALS of Kitsap County as its President (2016-2017) and its Corporate Secretary (2017 to present). I received the Officer of the Year Award (2014-2015) and the Award of Excellence (2015-2016).
In my spare time, I enjoy travel, theater, sewing and all forms of arts and crafts, gardening, hiking, trout fishing, and reading.
