Caring Transitions of Issaquah & Bellevue

Helping seniors relocate and downsize in Issaquah, Bellevue, and surrounding areas When I realized I could devote myself to helping seniors relocate and downsize, I jumped at the opportunity. Now I spend my days helping people move, settle into their new homes, and clear out their old homes in preparation for sale. It is a truly rewarding experience to help clients through the overwhelming task of relocating to a smaller home or retirement community. I love the personalized care that we are able to give to each client and home. I look forward to continuing to serve our Eastside communities.

Dr. Bansal is credentialed and privileged as dental surgeon at multiple hospital locations where she has been providing services to under privileged and children with special health care needs.

“Mary is a master at color. I have lived in several states (NM, CA, OH, ID, and now WA) and it has always been a huge challenge finding someone who is an expert at color. I had a dire situation with a color choice gone wrong back in March. The result is that I had very blonde hair with two inches of very brown roots in October. Mary fixed it all with a long term view and an amazing outcome. Mary has the requisite skill and vision to do an amazing cut and style. My daughter and I will definitely be back. Highly recommend!” ~ Joe H.

Jan Stockton Karate West Training Centers


Meet Jan Stockton, owner and co-founder of Karate West Training Centers. Countless Issaquah, Sammamish and greater eastside community members are familiar with the Karate West brand, which is known for its focus on life skills, commitment to excellence and (even with 900 members) a welcoming family atmosphere. While Karate West has been a pillar of the community for nearly 30 years, Jan Stockton has remained somewhat out of the spotlight. Today, we meet the woman behind the Karate West brand. Jan grew up in Yakima, Washington as one of 10 siblings, where she learned that young people have the ability to follow their dreams and create great lives for themselves, their organizations, and their societies. As an adult, Jan has been committed to youth empowerment. For example, she believes all children should have the opportunity to excel at a sport to gain personal confidence, regardless of their athletic ability (all kids can do karate – no one sits on the bench!). It comes as no surprise, then, that Karate West is known for fostering important like skills such as confidence, respect, academic excellence, discipline and leadership. But Jan doesn’t only advocate for teaching life skills; she also models them. For example, after earning her own black belt, Jan crafted and implemented a women’s self-defense program which became hugely popular amongst Karate West students and their female

8451 SE 68th Street | Mercer Island, WA 98040 206-232-4477 | family members. Jan believes that “walking the talk” is one of the most powerful forms of authentic leadership. As evidence, her two daughters followed in their mother’s footsteps, each earning a black belt, as well. In addition to her martial arts pursuits, Jan has spearheaded over a dozen large-scale youth charity projects including raising over $100k to help build a school in Kenya for at risk-girls, as well as numerous local initiatives. Further, Jan has spent the last 30 years supporting local public and private schools by donating to PTAs and raising money for school auctions. When asked what she is most grateful for, Jan says, “While I am very proud of the positive impact Karate West has had on the youth in our community, I am most grateful for our wonderful members and dedicated staff who are truly like family. We wouldn’t be Karate West without their love, commitment and support.”
