I believe in AWAKE because it provides the ability for women from all different backgrounds to grow on a professional and personal level. The AWAKE community works to strengthen relationships, solve problems, and encourage each of us to seek out opportunities. AWAKE members are unique in sharing these common goals, allowing AWAKE to strive in membership and growth.


As a life-long resident of Washington, I know the dreary winters are worth the wait when summer finally rolls around, and I know I could never find a more pleasant group of people, despite the rumors of the "Seattle Freeze." I love the Seattle community, which is ever-changing and growing in unexpected ways - some for the better and some for the worse. I love my job as an attorney, though when I'm not working, I cook, catch any sunshine we might be fortunate enough to see, and watch any movie available in 3D. I am passionate about helping people in our community, especially low-income and impoverished families. As someone who has had the bad fortune of experiencing many hungry nights as a child, I feel a particular connection to people who live without. Still I had a community that gave me the opportunity to attend college, and then law school, and finally pursue a pretty cool career. I am lucky now to help others as I was once helped, and I am in continual awe of those who dedicate their lives to build and maintain the good in our community.

Leadership is getting out of your own way, giving yourself and others the chance to make a mistake and grow, taking a risk to accomplish a goal, and needing no reason to help another other than they needed it.
