I was fortunate to begin my career as a judicial law clerk in 1981. I clerked first for the Hon. Charles F. Greevy, Jr. who was serving his 30th year on the bench. Thereafter, I clerked for the Hon. Robert J. (Jim) Wollet), serving his 1st year on the bench. I still rely on the lessons I learned from them - 30 years later.
I enjoy singing and acting, which I do regularly with the Williamsport Chamber Choir and Orchestra and the Community Theatre League. I am also an avid tennis player.
I am proud that my daughter, Maureen, is also an attorney. She served as an Assistant District Attorney for just shy of 6 years in Philadelphia, and now practices with the firm of Hamburg and Golden, also in the City of Brotherly Love.
