52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Every new adventure requires a first step.”

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...


I can't believe it was my first time hiking the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Trail! I was researching places to explore with my Mom and came across this amazing hike nestled in the Cascade Mountains. Driving on the road to the trailhead is unreal and it goes for miles. The trail itself offers a serene escape with its lush mossy forests, a meandering river, and breathtaking snow-capped mountain views. We stopped several times to take photos and had so much fun spending quality time together! If you want to go on a beautiful drive to an incredible hike along a PNW river, this is it!




Welcome Home!! Secluded amongst the trees, yet close to it all, this extraordinary Northwest contemporary home is a masterpiece of luxury living. With over $200,000 in recent upgrades, this Issaquah residence exudes modern elegance while effortlessly blending with its natural surroundings. Here are some of my favorite highlights:

▪️ Abundant Natural Light

▪️ Picturesque Nature Views

▪️ Top-Rated Issaquah Schools

▪️ Soaring Ceilings and Architectural Details

▪️ Direct Access to Community Trails from the Backyard

▪️ Spacious 1,000 sq ft Garage with 3 Bays & RV/Boat Storage

▪️ Generational Living Potential with a Kitchenette & Exterior Access

This stunning home is nestled in the sought-after High Valley neighborhood, offering access to miles of bridle and hiking trails, a park, a clubhouse, a playfield, events, and more. It's an opportunity to enjoy the best of the Northwest's natural beauty while remaining conveniently close to all that Issaquah has to offer.

I will be hosting an open house from 11am-2pm so come check it out 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.

Next time you are in Kirkland, I highly recommend checking out Cafe Organique! Their restaurant is so cute and they are also known as the healing kitchen. They believe that nutrient-rich foods are the best medicine and preventative healthcare; and deliver these benefits to their customers through delicious, healthful meals and fun, educational programs. They support local, organic, and sustainable farms, and their food is amazing! This week, I enjoyed the Vegan Veggie and Hummus Sandwich which had sauteed zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers, onions, vegan mayo, and mixed greens - plus it came with a fresh side salad! Cafe Organique is so good!
