Chief Financial Officer and Paralegal
Juggling many activities at the firm, Nicole prides herself on being a great advocate of HMS's clients and employees. Nicole started with us in July 2015 as our Office Manager and now works as our Chief Financial Officer as well as adding Paralegal duties supporting Attorney's Sunny Dobashi and Rodney Moy with the corporate maintenance program and Attorney's Rebecca Gardner and Laurel Dein with estate planning and trust administration. Nicole is passionate about the arts and put her skills in photography and design to use producing the yearbook for her sons' elementary school as well as leading the school's Art Docent program, demonstrating that an appreciation for fine arts can start at any age. Now that her sons are getting older she's finding new avenues to keep the creative vibes flowing. If you don't find her in the office Nicole's likely enjoying time with her family at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland, where she delights in feeling like a kid again.
Margaret joined our group in May 2018. After being a stay-at-home mom for many years, she attended MTI College to become a paralegal. Rebecca and Margaret worked together at another law firm and now continue the bond at HMS. When not at the office, you can find Margaret on the back of her husband's Harley Davidson exploring country roads and new restaurants. Her number one delight is her family. Camping is a family affair and they enjoy an annual family camping trip to Lake Siskiyou. It's always an adventure with all the kids and dogs.
