An urbanite at heart, I have lived in Seattle proper since I made my home here in 1996, and have made it my mission to learn everything our city has to offer and to experience much of it. Ours is a city of neighborhoods, each with unique attributes that make them hum.
My professional experience has a common thread: working in a position of trust to help clients achieve winning outcomes. I worked in marketing and brand management at Wizards of the Coast where I helped bring the Pokemon trading card game from Japan to the United States. I've been Deputy Campaign Manager on a local initiative campaign to save our public transit budget. I graduated Seattle University School of Law in 2004 and it has since been my pleasure to be a trusted advisor of clients on a variety of legal matters. I spent 13 years in federal pubic service, most as a supervising attorney with Social Security Administration.
I began obsessively watching the Seattle housing market from before its recent peak in 2007, looking for our dream home during a time with little inventory. A career in real estate has been the culmination of my professional experience and love of all things Seattle. It was a natural choice to become a real estate broker, where I can continue advising, advocating for and devising winning strategies for my clients so they too can find their place in Seattle and enjoy everything it has to offer.
In 2009, my husband and I found a diamond in the rough and transformed a powder blue rambler into a modern beauty with a giant organic vegetable garden out back. We have lived in North Beacon Hill ever since. When I am not working on behalf of my real estate clients, I enjoy discovering new artists and supporting local arts organizations, eating great food, getting nerdy about coffee, planning interior design projects, and tending to our small herd of furry friends.
