She started as a line attorney in the Criminal Division, handling all aspects of criminal trial work, and after a few years was focusing on criminal appellate work. Angela thereafter was selected to transfer to the Civil Division, Contracts Section, where she began practicing municipal law, advising clients such as the Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Center, Fleets and Facilities, Parks, and others.

Angela has been a member of the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island where she held the position of Community Grants Committee Chair. The committee annually awards approximately $150,000 in grants to local tax-exempt organizations for purchases and projects supporting the community. Its budget comes from proceeds of the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island Auction & Rummage Sale which annually grosses in the neighborhood of $600,000.
