Holly got involved in law for the same reason so many people find it challenging: the complexity and structure of it are hugely appealing to her. A voracious reader from as early as she can remember, the written word has always fascinated her, even more so now as a lawyer. Her passion for the law and its complexities benefits our clients because she is constantly looking for creative solutions and thoroughly enjoy tackling new challenges. A fiercely logical temperament and years of customer service experience serves her well in professional interactions. Rather than getting caught up in the emotional side of lawyering, it allows her to focus on the only issue that matters - obtaining the best possible results for my clients.
Holly grew up in the Pacific Northwest and loves this area of the country. She volunteers her time with various community organizations and serves as a Board Member for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Skagit County.
