About me

I was born and raised in West Michigan, and I take great pride in being a part of this community.  I graduated from Hope College in Holland, began my professional career in Kalamazoo, and attended law school in Grand Rapids.  My mission as an attorney is to provide my clients with outstanding legal representation, to do so with honesty and integrity and with a focus on my clients' goals, and to make our community a better place to work and live in the process.
