I am a passionate and dedicated advocate for my clients. I focus on all aspects of family law including divorce, separation, custody, child support, division of property, relocation actions, and spousal maintenance (alimony). I especially enjoy sorting out complex issues of law and helping families achieve outcomes that all parties can comfortably live with. I have received advanced training in trial techniques at National Institute for Trial Advocacy in Boulder, Colorado..
During and since graduating from law school, I have assisted on and conducted many successful trials. I enjoy litigation and love to fight for my clients. I believe in a personal and compassionate approach to family law. I attended Pepperdine University School of Law’s comprehensive mediation training. I enjoy assisting others with mediating matters to resolution. I also completed the American Association of Certified QDRO Professionals training.
In addition to litigating family law cases, I am appointed as a Guardian ad Litem under Title 26, in Yakima and Kittitas County. I also provide private consulting on family law cases.
I reside in Yakima, Washington with my husband and six children. I enjoy hiking, camping, watching baseball, and spending time with my family. I am pleased to advocate for families in the community I grew up in. I enjoy being an active member of our community and serve as a Board Member for Rod’s House.

Attorney At Law
Having grown up in Yakima, I have strong ties to the Yakima Valley. It was these ties, as well as my desire to practice law in a community I respected, that brought me back to our valley in 2016. With both a law degree and a Master’s in Business, I offer my clients a unique and valuable approach when litigating their cases. I have practiced in a diverse array of legal specialties, including family law, criminal defense, animal law and legislative work.
I enjoy being an active member of our community and serve as the secretary of the Yakima County Bar Association, a volunteer attorney for Yakima Volunteer Attorney Services, a board member for the Vegetarians of Yakima and Capital Theater, and a member of Yakima’s Junior League. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, running, exploring the outdoors, and doing my best to keep up with my bonus kids and 2+ dogs. I am honored and humbled to have earned my clients trust as their advocate during some of life’s most challenging transitions.
