Kirsteen McDowall Family Service Counselor preneed@firlane.com

Kirsteen was born in Waukegan, Illinois and grew up in Antioch, Illinois.  After graduating from Illinois State University with a BS degree in Family in Child Community Services she headed out to live in Colorado.  One year later she was back in the Midwest to further her education in biblical studies. 

She has had the opportunity to live in various parts of the country.  The state of Washington has been her home for many years now.  She loves the walks on the trail by her home in Kent as well as other locations in the Northwest with her beloved dog Bella. 

Kirsteen has had many opportunities to work in various capacities in the non-profit arena as an Executive Director, Fund Development Director and Community Relations Director.  However, most of her career has been spent serving seniors in social services, life enrichment programming, community liaison work and senior living advisement.  Through these experiences in working with families, she has seen the importance of pre-planning.   She has seen the value of families who have taken the time and effort to think beyond their death to those remaining behind.   Kirsteen considers it a privilege to assist them with their plans.
