52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Find a way, not an excuse.”

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Join me as I journey through life on a mission to make a difference, one step at a time, one week at a time. How was your week? Here's a glance at mine...


Granite Mountain is located in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area and is where I decided to hike this week! I knew from previous experience that this trail has a lot of sun exposure so I began my hike earlier than normal as it was supposed to be a scorcher. By the time I hiked up the several switchbacks, through the meadow, and up the final rock scramble... I made it to the fire lookout tower and it was 95 degrees out! Such a beautiful day so soak up the sunshine and enjoy the Northwest views!




Welcome home to this beautifully remodeled Issaquah home located in a tranquil setting! With two separate living spaces, this home has endless possibilities! The upper level offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and totals 1930 square feet. The kitchen and bathrooms have been recently updated and the home has generous living and dining areas with outstanding natural light. The lower level has a separate entrance and is an additional 1790 square feet which includes an additional primary en-suite, a second bedroom, a full bath, a den, a spacious kitchen, and a family & living room. This level also has hardwood flooring and updated finishes throughout. The secluded yard is just under an acre with plenty of space for activities. In addition, the property has two driveways, is close to trails, and is part of the coveted Issaquah School district. This home could be yours... and I can help! Looking forward to seeing you at my open house on Sunday!

The 52 Difference.

My goal each year is to transform the lives of 52 homeowners as I guide them through their home buying or selling experience. 

For every home sold, I donate $52 to Washington Trails Association in support of our aligned mission to protect the place we call home, the Pacific Northwest.


52 Flavors.

Duke's Seafood is a full-service restaurant and bar with 7 locations around Puget Sound offering flavorful, tasty dishes! While they are known for their 100% sustainable seafood - fresh Dungeness crab, prawns, chowder, and their signature wild salmon recipes... they also offer amazing vegan options! This week, I had lunch at Duke's Seafood in Bellevue and enjoyed the Vegan Veggie Stew which has sautéed vegetables, caramelized peppers & onions, baby red potatoes, garlic, and herbs, in a roasted tomato broth. The stew was incredible and is served with a warm basket of homemade sourdough bread!
