Immediate Past President
Hello NALS of Washington members! I work for the wonderful law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP in Seattle, where we hold our SSCLE’s in January. I came over to DWT from Dorsey & Whitney LLP in 2015, following my attorneys who I have worked with since shortly after my start at Dorsey in 2006. I have had the pleasure of serving for two consecutive terms as the Education Director for the Greater Seattle chapter, one concurrent term as the NALS of Washington Education Director, followed by serving as your Marketing Director. My service through NALS has garnered me four awards: Member of the Year 2013-14, Volunteer of the Year 2014, Officer of the Year 2015-16, and Member of the Year 2016-17. In addition, many of you know that I have volunteered for the non-profit association Courthouse Dogs at their annual international conference for the last six years. My love of animals and my dedication to saving rescues is a high priority for me as there are so many animals who need solid loving homes. I have worked in law my entire adult life and could not love any career more. I enjoy giving back to my community through public service and volunteering in programs that I believe bring basic core values to not only our community, but to the legal field to which I have devoted my life. My goal during my term is to show you the value of being a member and to show how much you gain through your membership, but to also show the value you bring by simply contributing your time to such worthy and amazing organizations like NOW and Courthouse Dogs. We are always on the lookout for new members or even those just looking for ways to help by providing their services. If you have any ideas to benefit these groups, I would very much love to hear from you. Your thoughts and ideas are extremely valuable. There is no such thing as a stupid question in my book. Question everything…it’s the best way to learn. I am here to share ideas and help you carve your mark in the legal field. If you would ever like to get coffee or sit and dish out ideas, I am your gal, and I would love to meet with you and trade inspirations. Becoming a part of NALS to further my career, my ultimate goals and aspirations through certification, and becoming a part of something bigger, is what drives me harder. Thank you for visiting my page!
