About Me

My proudest accomplishment is that I am the mother of two wonderful daughters. One who is training full time as a dancer at the age of ten - I am awed by her talent and perseverance. One who is severely disabled - I am awed by her zest for life and her optimism.


My oldest daughter's disability is a rare mitochondrial disorder which has left her visually, physically and intellectually impaired. Her health is very challenged and she requires a lot of care to remain at home. She attends Perkins School for the Blind and loves music and parties.


I have learned so much from these two fabulous human beings and I know it makes me a better attorney.
