At Gosanko & O’Halloran, our personal injury lawyers serve clients in every community in the State of Washington.  It is not uncommon for us to pursue cases in Skagit County, Benton County, Mason County, Kitsap County, Island County, Grant County, and Spokane County, in addition to representing many clients in Seattle, Bellevue, Everett and Tacoma.

I grew up on Mercer Island, Washington, with my parents and two sisters. As a teenager, I attended a private liberal arts High School on Capitol Hill—Seattle Academy of Arts and Sciences—where I developed a love for urban environments. I was an avid soccer player for most all of my youth, and balanced my physical activity with fantastic literary worlds.

I then moved to New York to attend New York University and spent four years as an adventuresome, independent, young woman. I soaked up art galleries, coffeeshops, music cultures and the nuances of East Coast attitudes.

Following my degree in English and American Literature, I moved to San Francisco for three years. I dabbled in salsa dancing, sunbathing, and writing for a small independent publication. Embracing adulthood, my soccer career as a child developed into a love for running which proliferated in the Bay Area. I spent many evenings running around my beloved lake, Lake Merritt, which lies in downtown Oakland.

Most of my family members remained in Seattle, Washington, where I returned in 2015. Shortly thereafter, I joined Gosanko and O’Halloran. I now work as a paralegal, absorbing and consulting the knowledgeable associates I work alongside. I participate in a recreational adult soccer team, enjoy the Washingtonian sights from my running shoes, and embrace the challenge of learning to snowboard. When I am not sharing my wisdom with clients, I educate my little sister who will be heading to college in the summer of 2017.
