Judge Ferrera has in-depth knowledge and experience.

Raised in Snohomish County, Judge Ferrera learned the value of hard work at a very early age – her family worked in agriculture, raising chickens and honeybees, and cultivating an apple and pear orchard.

Leading by example, her parents taught Judge Ferrera and her brother the important life-lesson skills of working hard, being honest, and always doing your best.

Judge Ferrera attended Western Washington University where she majored in Cultural Anthropology and Minored in Mandarin Chinese.  It was in her Anthropological studies that she evolved her ability to approach complicated situations, cultures and conflicts from an unbiased point-of-view.  She put this skill to work first hand while teaching in Beijing, China.  

Realizing her passion for helping others navigate difficult situations, she attended law school at the University of Washington, graduating in 2008.

Judge Ferrera and her husband, Mark, relocated to Chelan County where she began work with the law firm of Jeffers, Danielson, Sonn & Aylward, P.S. where she quickly earned accolade as a high achiever, scholar and contributor to equal justice.

Her husband, Mark, now teaches Middle School Math in Orondo. They have two daughters, and reside in Chelan County where they love to run, bike, and hike – while enjoying all the beauty our region has to offer.
