About Me

I attended Michigan State University from 1986-1990 and earned a bachelor of arts degree in accounting. I then went on to obtain my law degree in 1993 from Indiana University (ranked among the top 20 law schools in the country). After graduating, I moved to Grand Rapids and have been practicing law there for over 20 years. I enjoy sail boat racing, traveling and arts and crafts.
