About Me

In addition to practicing law for over 26 years, with the support of my husband I have raised three children to adulthood.  I have been an active volunteer with Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts for 12 years.  I am a volunteer judge for the Tri-Valley Youth Court which helps juvenile offenders avoid the traditional juvenile justice system.  As a mother of an active duty soldier, I am also active with the local chapter of Blue Star Moms.


I enjoy kayaking, bird watching and Krav Maga in which I've earned my green belt.
