I have practiced in Oregon, California, Alaska, and briefly interned in Australia and New Zealand. I have 25 years of civil litigation experience in state and federal trial and appellate courts. Currently, my primary areas of practice are foreclosure defense and bankruptcy. As I have a passion to help others, I continually sharpen my knowledge of changes in the law in Oregon and other states to stay on the cutting edge of the foreclosure crisis.
I have been actively involved in the community by serving on the Ashland Forest Lands Commission, Medford Planning Commission, and various non-profit boards, such as Mediation Works. I have been an amateur actor at Oregon Stage Works and Camelot Theatre. I love to travel, garden, practice yoga, and enjoy plays, concerts, and movies.
