About Me

I am blessed to be able to help persons with injuries and disabilities navigate the complicated and often confusing areas of Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability to effect a real and positive change in their circumstances.


 


I enjoy sharing my time and talents in various church and community volunteer opportunities.


 


For fun and recreation, I love to sail and sing barbershop songs.
