I grew up knowing I wanted to be an attorney. During WWII, my dad was born in an internment camp in Colorado and the injustice of this has resonated throughout my life and has made me distinctly aware of when others are mistreated.
I went to school at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, but graduated cum laude from Seattle Pacific University in 2000. I was accepted into Seattle University School of Law and graduated in 2003.
Since passing the bar in 2003, I worked as a public defender at the Associated Counsel for the Accused for approximately eight years representing indigent clients in King County in Seattle Municipal Court, Juvenile Court, and Superior Court. I loved being in the courtroom and did as many jury trials as I possibly could.
In wanting to be the most well-rounded attorney I could, I also worked as in-house counsel for a large insurance company and learned the defense side of personal injury law. I learned how to process and evaluate claims and how to litigate cases from the insurance defense perspective.
