My name is Anne and I publish BeLocal Kirkland. Having lived in Washington most of my life I’ve settled here and love it! Kirkland is like the best of all worlds – a resort-like community situated on Lake Washington and with all the amenities of a larger town. I live downtown and can take a walk to one of the beautiful waterfront parks, gather with friends at my favorite coffee shop, choose a restaurant for dinner from almost every cuisine imaginable, then enjoy an incredible concert or family-friendly play at the Kirkland Performance Center. We have so much to share with you in our beloved town!

Kirkland is a small town with a big heart. Our community members are always looking for ways to give back. Volunteering is a huge part of my life in Kirkland and I’ve made lifelong friendships through volunteering. if you’re looking for ways to get involved or want to share some of your favorite places in Kirkland, let’s talk!
