I became a lawyer because I saw the need for more lawyers who actually helped those who truly needed it.
My greatest talent as a lawyer is listening. This may sound simple,
but I get so many clients who are so happy because I listened
when no one else would.
The best advice I have for new lawyers is don’t be afraid to try something new. You don’t have to do things the way every other lawyer has done them.
Think outside of the
The most rewarding part
of my job is helping people. Before I started
my own firm, I worked
for the Domestic
Abuse Women’s Network (DAWN). I still
help a lot of survivors
of domestic violence
now that I am on my
own and it is truly rewarding to help men,
women, and children
get out of abusive relationships.
The worst part of my job
is realizing you can’t
help everyone who
asks. As a solo, you
don’t have the time or
resources to take on
every client who calls
looking for help. It can
be heartbreaking turning away those who truly need help.
I enjoy reading actual books. I love being able to turn the pages.
I don’t like how technology is making books obsolete. There
is something special about picking up a book and flipping the
I create work/life balance by having as much fun as possible. One of
the joys of being a solo is being able to create your schedule. So if
I feel like trying indoor skydiving on a Tuesday at 11 a.m., I can.
Nobody would ever suspect that I write stand-up
comedy. Hopefully one
day I will actually perform some of my jokes on
I give back to my community by volunteering. I
volunteer with three organizations in the Puget
Sound area. I volunteer
with an organization
called Birthday Dreams
that hosts birthday parties for homeless children.
I also volunteer with a local nonprofit called Limbs
For U which donates re-cyclable prosthetic limbs
to people in developing
countries. Finally, I have
been volunteering with
the Housing Justice
Project in Kent for nearly
This is on my bucket list:
riding a bull. I would say for eight seconds, but if I get two seconds, I’d be happy. I went to college in Wyoming and met a lot of
real cowboys who influenced this goal.
This makes me smile: great views, puppies, cupcakes, and kindness.
If $100,000 fell into my lap, I would skip into Sallie Mae Headquarters and count out the remainder of my law school debt in one-dollar bills. Then I’d take a vacation with the rest.
My dream trip would be to the Galapagos Islands.
If I have learned one thing in life, to borrow from Maya Angelou,“I’ve
learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt
on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.”

During my free time, I work out, hike, explore, read, cook, binge-watch TV shows on Netflix, and look for new things to try.
I look up to my father. He is a man of great integrity and full of
kindness. He served 38 years in the military and fought in three
If I took one day off in the middle of the week, I would take a day trip
somewhere in the state. Washington has so much to see and you
can get to many places within a couple of hours. I’ve been trying
to explore as much as I possibly can.
