About Me

I was born in Morenci, Michigan and grew up in that rural area.  For my undergraduate degree, I attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio, where I majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Psychology.  In December 1995, I graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA.  In December 1998, I graduated from University of Michigan Law School.  After passing the February 1999 bar exam, I began practicing law in June 1999. 


I am married and have one daughter, as well as a cat.  My interests include travel, writing, reading, running, movies, baking, camping, and canoeing.
