Practice Areas

As a Litigation Paralegal I work primarily in Insurance Defense for Washington and Oregon. I work closely with attorneys, experts, and clients on Automotive, Minor Settlements, and Commercial Liability cases. I have extensive experience in Wrongful Death cases and catastrophic accidents.

Professional Background

Before joining Kilmer Voorhees & Laurick, I was at Jordan Ramis PC for ten years in Vancouver Washington and Smith, Freed & Eberhard in Portland Oregon where I was a Senior Litigation Paralegal for twelve years, both mid to large litigation law firms. Prior to working as a paralegal, I helped create two Community Courts in the Portland metropolitan area. I was involved in the development and research of the courts, and traveled to national hearings and meetings with other Community Court Judges and Administrators.

Significant Experience

With over 22 years of experience working in litigation, I enjoy working with medical experts, liability experts, investigators, witnesses, and clients. I’ve supported numerous cases through trial and have had the opportunity to work on several high profile cases.


I grew up in Bend, Oregon and enjoy the outdoors, running, golfing, and skiing.
