What neighborhood do you live in?

​​Historic Snoqualmie

How long have you lived in that neighborhood?

5+ years

What is something most people don't know about you?

I’m a total homebody! Although I love being part of the valley community and have created so many positive connections, I recharge my batteries when I am at home. I really enjoy spending time in my home office or backyard while investing in my business and my family.

Why do you think it's important for people to shop local?

One of the biggest reasons we choose where to live or work is based on the surrounding community and everything it offers. A community is created when the people who are your neighbors, family members, friends, coworkers, and business owners come together on common ground. Shopping locally supports each community member in some way and even extends to others that you haven’t connected with yet. It provides the opportunity to stay in the valley, to contribute to the community, and to thrive on personal and professional levels.

Where are your favorite places to go in the neighborhood/Valley?

My husband and I enjoy frequenting local restaurants, the nearby trails, and our own backyard with its views and peaceful setting.

What are your favorite things to do in the neighborhood/Valley?

There are so many things to choose from right here in the valley! Every day there is an opportunity to try something new or visit a new place. I love to introduce people to The Trail Youth Coffee Home because it supports our local teens.

What are your favorite restaurants in the Valley?

Wildflower Bistro, North Bend Bar & Grill, Mt. Si Golf Course restaurant, and a few of the Mexican restaurants are just a few of the ones we enjoy.

Anything exciting going on that customers should know about? 

Keeping Balanced Solutions is growing thanks to the support of the Snoqualmie Valley community!

What is something most people don't know about the business?

At Keeping Balanced Solutions, we not only help keep the books in order, but we also take the time to educate our clients. We strongly believe that building a healthy partnership ensures that our clients understand what we do and why we ask for certain things, allowing for a firm foundation on which to grow. From day one, we spend time getting to know your business and your industry. Bookkeeping is not a one-size-fits-all and we make sure that our services are catered to the needs of your business.
