When I’m not serving clients, I’m likely spending time with my family or getting outside to take advantage of this region’s opportunities for cycling, paddling, caving, and backpacking. I’m also involved in community service organizations, particularly in the arts and education arenas.
"I’m entirely dedicated to my clients. I consider their problems as my problems, and their successes as my successes. I take a contemplative and deliberate approach to resolving the challenges and issues they bring me, yet I also work efficiently. By getting to know the details of their concerns and goals, I can craft responses that are as strategic and effective as possible."
