Cathy Villemure, who has a Master of Science degree in accounting and 15 years experience, recently leased an office space in a business park just off 85th Street and a few blocks northeast of Parkplace.

“With the close access to Highway 405 and Bellevue, Redmond, Bothell, Woodinville, and Kenmore all bordering Kirkland,” said Villemure, “the location is very convenient for my clients.” Villemure shares office space with other service professionals after opting to start her own business.
