I was born in Mason, Michigan, but grew up on the mission field in Puerto Rico. I grew up with a sense that showing compassion and serving others was the greatest goal in life. When I finished my undergraduate degree from Great Lakes Christian College in Ministry, I felt called to do something greater. I attended Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan where I graduated 2nd in my class. After passing the bar, I have pursued a career in law where I can first and foremost help people.
I center my practice around assisting the elderly with their everyday needs. I do everything from basic estate planning, with wills and trusts, to more complicated arrangements, using insurance policies and long term care options. In addition I assist families in getting the elderly and disabled medicaid qualified when they enter the nursing home for a long term stay.
