About Me

Some fun facts about me: I'm the oldest of eight children; I was homeschooled for most of my elementary school education; I am married to a South African who was born in Zimbabwe; I have three children.


To my mind, being an attorney makes me part of the "helping professions."  It is my only goal to bring peace and stability to my client's lives.
