52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“You can't control life, but you can control how you react to it.”

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...


It's rare that I get the chance to explore a trail that I have never been on and this week was one of those times! Mount Catherine is a short but steep hike that is located near Snoqualmie Pass and is absolutely amazing! The trail is well groomed and the leaves were just starting to change colors!! As I got to the summit, the clouds began to roll in and the views slowly disappeared. Although it was a moody day in the mountains, I loved every second of it, and I'm excited to come back here again next year... but on a clear day!




Are you in the market for a new home? This could be THE ONE! This 4-bedroom luxury residence is located in the desirable Fill Hill neighborhood and is a must-see! With 3460 sq ft of meticulously designed living space, this Kirkland home boasts a harmonious blend of architectural brilliance and high-end finishes. The four bedrooms are very spacious and each is complete with a walk-in closet, providing both style and functionality. The beautiful primary suite offers a terrace with a spiral staircase leading to your own private oasis. The thoughtfully designed office doubles as a 5th bedroom with its convenient Murphy bed and in addition, there is an oversized bonus room! Entertain and/or relax on your very own rooftop deck while enjoying the breathtaking views of Lake Washington, Bellevue & and more. The patios and maintenance-free grass make for an ideal PNW outdoor living space. Come by my open house today from 11am - 2pm to check out this stunning home in person!

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.

If you are looking for a pizza that sparks joy, this is it! Spark Pizza in Redmond is one of the top 50 pizza places in the US and is seriously delicious. I went out to dinner with some friends and I can't believe it was my first time visiting! I was blown away by the food, beverages, and service and loved how they had several vegan options. We dined outside on their fun patio and enjoyed a pizza called "Buffy the Vegetarian Slayer" - which they prepared vegan for us with plant-based cheese! We also had the PNW salad (not pictured) and it was amazing as well! I will definitely be coming back here again soon!
