My Real Estate Career began as an investor, buying and maintaining rental homes. As my interest in the industry grew, I earned my license. I have a B.A. in Kinesiology from the University of Washington (classical ballet is still my passion), and I've been a Kirkland resident since 1980. My prior careers include Sr. Underwriter/Risk Analyst in Property and Casualty Insurance and Business Owner of the Avoir (fine art) Gallery in Kirkland. I've been a member of the Ryther Child Center League for over 35 years and I'm active in affordable housing efforts with both Imagine Housing and Attain Housing, two local groups.
