About me

In addition to being a board certified elder law attorney, I am a former nursing home social worker and a military veteran.  That background has been incredibly beneficial to me as I serve my clients. 


 


On a personal note, I enjoy living in Florida because it allows me to be outside so much of the time.  In being outside I participate in nature photography, hiking, long distance running.  when I can travel I like to visit new and different places.  I still have many places to go!
