THE MOST TREASURED THING I OWN

Time. It is one of the few things in life that we cannot get back once it is gone. It allows me to hone my focus on being present for my family, spending time with friends, and continual professional growth.

ONE PIECE OF ADVICE

Focus on what you can control and let go of what you can’t.

HOBBIES

Spending as much time outside as possible and enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest. You can find me running my three boys to various sporting events, skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, enjoying an outdoor concert, or hosting outdoor movie nights in our backyard over the summer.
