I was born in Kennewick, Washington, and lived for a few years in nearby Pasco. My family moved around the state a bit, stopping briefly in Cle Elum and nearby Ronald, both nestled in the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range, before eventually settling in a little agricultural community called Colfax, which is located in the Palouse Hills area. There I graduated from Colfax High School, and afterwards attended college at Central Washington University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising.

After graduating from Central, I moved to Moscow, Idaho, where I worked as an Assistant Manager for Lerner New York, a women’s clothing store located in the Palouse Empire Mall. After a few years there, I moved to Lincoln City, Oregon, where I was an Assistant Manager at Van Heusen Direct in the Factory Outlet Center, and eventually moved to Atascadero, California.

I worked briefly at Clothestime in San Luis Obispo, California, but after a few months I was offered a better job at the E.N.U.F. Internationale store at the Atascadero Factory Outlets Mall. That store later went out of business, so I decided to use the opportunity to back to school and train for a different career. This time I attended California Polytechnic State University’s Extended Education Program in SLO, and after a little over a year, I received my certificate in Paralegal Studies. I currently have a great job as a paralegal with a wonderful law firm in San Luis Obispo. I have been working as a Legal Process Clerk at the San Luis Obispo Superior Court since August 10, 2005.


I love football, F1, reading good books, writing stories and poetry, taking photographs, and rubber stamping.
