My family and I moved to the Skagit Valley 13 years ago to start an organic vineyard, but my roots in the Pacific Northwest go back to when my great-grandfather came to Whatcom County in a covered wagon.

I started my career in advertising and marketing then became an attorney working extensively in fair housing. When my daughter was born I turned my attention to motherhood, art, and design. My passion is helping people find their dream home. My background in marketing, law and design helps me partner with my clients through every aspect of the purchase and sale process. And my background in winemaking means I can always recommend a good red.

My husband, Richard Hughes, and I live near beautiful downtown Mount Vernon with our daughter, Annie, and Golden Retriever, Ella.
