About Me

I am a general practicioner who specializes in Family Law, who started my own practice in 2008.  Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a television and radio news reporter and anchor in Illinois and Iowa, at WROK Radio in Rockford, WHO Radio in Des Moines, KTVO-TV in Ottumwa, Metro Networks in Chicago, and a few other places.  I'm married to Brian Adams, the morning newscaster at WDKB-FM in DeKalb who I met filling in for him.  We have three cats.
