Getting to Know Me
My happy place is on the beach. The connection with the water restores me, inspires me and fills me with energy. It’s always been that way. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Hawaii. It taught me a lot about family, relationships, being different, and learning how to work. Anyone who has ever been there knows how expensive it is!
My earliest dream was to be a lawyer – not a real estate professional. Funny how life turns out! From my earliest memories curled up in front of the TV watching Matlock and Perry Mason, I just KNEW that was what I wanted. I worked hard, putting myself through school working in law firms as a paralegal, and marching towards law school. I loved litigation – the challenges, the camaraderie of a team working to advocate for our clients, problem solving, strategy, and negotiation. I loved it all. And then I met my husband and had a daughter.
My husband you see is a contractor, and our very first house was… well many would say a money pit! But we saw nothing but opportunity. From there the new dream was born. I LOVED homes. Creating a diamond from something not so sparkly filled me with joy. With my husband’s skills, and my inability to take no for an answer – we had bought our first home, and began our new life. My life is now the perfect blend of law, design, and helping others find their happy place.
We have had an amazing journey – finding our way to this beautiful area 15 years ago … drawn to it by all the natural beauty, and miles and miles of coastline. Just give me a chance, and I will tell you all the wonderful things about it here – the people, the small town feel, the amazing sunsets looking towards the Olympic Mountains, and Central Market!
In My Spare Time
When I am not scouring the area for someone else’s happy place, you will find me on my beach, with my family, and my yellow lab Bailey. Throwing the stick far out into the water – just waiting for her to bring it back joyously to us, making us laugh with her overflowing enthusiasm. Life is good! I’m fulfilled with the ability to help people find their happy place, and I have truly found mine.
