About Me

Prior to Marquette Law School, I had an extensive career in credit & collections in various business settings:  Banking, Office Products Supplier, Insurance

In addition to my professional career, I have served as President of the Waukesha County Chapter of the Wisconsin Alumni Association and have been a chapter board member since 1997.  Our main mission is to raise funds for scholarships for area high school seniors attending UW Madison and develop connections with the University of Wisconsin.

I have excellent time management, communication, leadership, and negotiation skills to work out the best resolution for my clients.
