About me

I love my work as an attorney.  I meet courageous people who have suffered tragic losses and want to stand up to the big companies who are responsible for their losses.  I am fortunate to help them seek the compensation they deserve.  Together we try to make our community a safer place.    A safe community is important to me as a mother.   When I'm not working I am scurrying to get to my daughters' various sporting and dance activities.  As a family, we enjoy bike rides, hiking, and movie nights at home.
