About me

I am a child of divorce.  I am the parent of four of the most incredibly wonderful gifts of adoption (and a biological son).  As a child I decided I wanted to be a TV newswoman, a teacher, a lawyer or a ballerina.  I spent the better part of a decade as a Television News Producer, another seven years as a middle school teacher, and here I am -- an attorney.  I'm considering letting go of my ballerina dreams.  I hold a current California Teaching Credential and I am the parent of three special needs children on IEPs.
