About me

I focus my practice on family law litigation, especially cases involving closely held businesses and high-net worth individuals, as well as complex custody cases.  As a prior Director of Education for the American Society of Pension Actuaries and a Series 7 licensed securities broker, I have considerable business and financial expertise that is unusual among family law practitioners.  My education includes post-graduate work at The Wharton School, focusing on employee benefits. I am a past Certified Employee Benefits Specialist through the ASPA, and a past licensed Life Insurance agent.  I have also successfully litigated some of the most challenging and emotionally charged family law cases in the state, including international move-away cases, allegations of child abuse and parental alienation.  I have appeared in Los Angeles and Atlanta, as well as throughout Oregon and southern Washington.  My husband and I have fostered several children through both DHS and OYA, and we have adopted two children.
