THE MOST TREASURED THING I OWN

Family pictures. I have several printed albums of old family photos in addition to albums for each of my children’s first year of life. I can’t tell you how often we/guests look at these and smile.

ONE PIECE OF ADVICE

I’m adamant about having our clients plan ahead and coordinate with legal, tax, insurance counsel, etc. Waiting until life altering events happen can be enormously distracting, stressful, and often results in a less than ideal outcome.

HOBBIES

I love spending time with my family, traveling, and taking part in a broad range of outdoor activities. I’m also a huge sports fan, have season tickets to Husky football games, and watch every Seahawks game I have the opportunity to catch!
