I am a veteran of the U.S. Army, and worked as a human resources non-commissioned officer. I will complete my Associates degree in General Studies, and then start my Bachelor’s in Human Resources.

I loved the challenge of managing several deadlines and a variety of different cases.

I like that my legal skills from the military are helpful in understanding the civilian side of legal matters. I am enjoying learning Washington law specifically and getting to help a lot of clients. I enjoy working with the elderly and disabled to make their lives easier. I also enjoy the professional development and training that is offered so that I can become more effective as a receptionist and a legal assistant.
