About Sally LaBay, CPH

I have spent most of my life in the beautiful PNW and have lived in Lake Stevens, WA since 2017. I've been married to my firefighter husband for nearly 25 years and am a mom of two teenagers.  I have two rescue dogs- a chocolate lab and lab mix. I love hiking, traveling, and of course- gardening!
