About Me

Both my parents own small businesses, so it is very personal to me to see local businesses succeed and make an impact. After moving to Seattle for my JD/MBA, I interned at Apex and I stayed with Apex to build my career because of Apex’s focus on empowering entrepreneurs to make a difference.

I serve local for-profits and nonprofits through formation, growth, and exit strategies. I empower both for-profit and nonprofit founders to establish their new venture correctly from day one. Working with a business from the start builds a solid foundation from the first day they open their doors.

In my off time, I enjoy being with my kiddos and husband, baking, watching cooking shows, and running.
