- Member, Taxation Section and Estate and Gift Tax Committee, Washington State Bar Association
Instead of going to law school right after college, Nancy, an economics major, spent four years traveling and working at a series of intriguing jobs. This experience included working at a Denver engineering firm where she evaluated the social and economic impacts of large energy development projects in the Western United States. Later, the State of Alaska hired her to analyze the economics of hydroelectric projects. “It was a fascinating time because economists were using new computer tools for projections,” she says.
After graduating from law school, Nancy practiced in a variety of business and tax-related areas before deciding to concentrate on estate planning and probate. “I enjoy estate planning and probate because those areas involve counseling clients on personal issues as well as tax planning.”
Nancy is married with 3 children. Her older daughters currently live and work for non-profit organizations in Peru and South Africa. She enjoys hiking, traveling and practicing Spanish.
