Welcome to the Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce!

2017 is off to a great start and our Kirkland business community is thriving. Our excellent staff and board are working hard to insure that 2017 is a year of growth and prosperity for our organization and the Kirkland community at large.

Our vision for this year includes expansion of the benefits our members receive by creating new and exciting partnerships with other Kirkland organizations, building bridges between old and new connections to advance the interests of all our business and individual members.  We will be launching new events like our first annual business conference, and continuing to grow popular events like the Wine Walk and Annual Gala Auction.  No matter how large or small your business, the Chamber has something for everyone.

Our members benefit from the advocacy of our public policy committee which strives to advance business legislation at the local and state levels.  We further benefit from our membership in the East King County Chambers of Commerce Legislative Coalition, which represents thousands of businesses in East King County.  Our Chamber Ambassadors seek out new members and businesses and provide networking and business advancement opportunities to current members.

I began my involvement in the Chamber of Commerce in 2011 when I became a member and joined the Ambassadors committee.  After participating in great events like the networking luncheons, business luncheons, and business after-hours, I found my place among our strong and welcoming Chamber membership.  In 2014 I began to co-chair the Kirkland Young Professionals committee which reaches out to the many young entrepreneurs and business people in our community.  Since then I’ve become involved in other Chamber committees and extended my community involvement to include participation in the planning committee for Kirkland Summerfest and a seat on the board of the Kirkland Downtown Association.

Professionally, I’m a partner at the law firm Krueger Beck, PLLC in downtown Kirkland.  I have been a practicing attorney since 2011 and I specialize in the areas of estate planning and probate administration.  Our firm prepares all manner of wills, trusts and other estate planning documents, and we advise clients on all issues related to the settlement of estates and probate.

You can contact me any time through the form below.  I’d be happy to answer any of your questions.
