About me

I have been practicing law for over 25 years. Prior to attending law school, as a registered nurse, I was Wyoming Medical Center's first Chief Flight Nurse for Wyoming Life Flight, founded in 1983. After law school I litigated medical malpractice defense cases for18 years with Murane & Bostwick.  During this time I also began practicing education law, representing Natrona County School District. I continue to represent NCSD and select medical clients today.


Since joining Dixon & Dixon, LLP (formerly Chapin & Dixon) in 2006, I have litigated hundreds of domestic relations cases including divorce, child custody and related matters. My nursing and social work background provides a highly developed understanding of parents' and children's needs, although I am best known as an aggressive and skilled litigator.


I have a great passion for, and dedication to, providing skilled, comprehesive legal services, particularly for those seeking representation in divorce, child custody or adoption.
