About Me

I began my career as a registered nurse in 1982.  I loved taking care of patients.  A few years later, I went through a divorce and had a great attorney.  He helped me through a difficult process.  He inspired me to go to law school.  Now I get to help nurses through a difficult time.


 


I am a single mother of 3 chldren.  They are my inspiration.  They teach me everyday about patience and being present in the moment!


 


I love doing what I do and combining my love of nursing and healthcare with the law and being of service to people.
