You’ll find Whitney in the Walnut Creek office.

When not practicing, you’ll find Whitney traveling or planning a trip. She has been to over 15 countries and plans to go to more! She loves Disney and has been to 3 out of 6 of the Disneyland Resorts. She still hasn’t made it to Hong Kong, Shanghai, or Tokyo yet, but hopes to soon!
