I concentrate my practice on elder law, estate planning & administration, family law and real estate out of the Knox Law firm's North East, PA office. I am Collaboratively Trained in family law matters and am a member of both the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and Collaborative Professionals of Northwest PA.
I have been selected as the “Best Attorney” of both 2012 and 2013 by the readers of the North East News-Journal. I speak about estate planning and family law topics often, am a Board Member for Community Nursing Services of North East, and am on the Steering Committee of the North East Business Women's Roundtable.
I am also a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Women in the Profession Committee, the Erie County Bar Association, the Estate Planning Council of Erie, and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.
Following my graduation from law school, I practiced at a small firm in Memphis, Tennessee. Subsequently, I operated my own general practice firm, served as an adjunct professor at Gannon University, and worked as a real estate broker and settlement agent in the local market.
