Whitney Nightingale

Legal Assistant

Whitney1I grew up in Bellingham and graduated from Squalicum High School in 2004. After high school, I attended Bellingham Technical College, and graduated with my AA in Accounting. Shortly after graduating from high school, I began working for a local engineering company in their accounting department, where I met my husband Jimmy, an electrical engineer.

I began working at the firm in 2011, and quickly grew to love the field of law. Every day I work on something different; I am excited to continue my education in the legal field.

I started at Shepherd and Allen as the receptionist and was promoted to legal assistant, with my main focus being medical records and all things associated. I am a member of the Washington State Association for Justice Legal Staff Section (WSAJ) and look forward to becoming more involved in the future.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, vacationing, shopping, working out, and loving on my puppy-child, Kash. When I was younger, I was heavily involved in showing horses and 4-H. Although I don’t show anymore, I continue to stay engaged in the “horse world” and take care of my 17 year old gelding Zucchini.
