About me

I enjoy working with clients to find solutions to their unique circumstances and assist them as they move through a difficult phase of life. I see my most important role as that of problem solver. Each case is different and calls for its own approach.


I am originally from Upstate New York, where I attended Colgate University.  I moved to DC to attend The George Washington University Law School and have been here ever since.  During law school, I was a regulatory intern at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions and also worked on large-scale litigation projects.  Since graduating from law school and taking the bar, I have focused on family law.  I have been in the area of family law since since 2006, when I joined Maddox Cole & Miller. 


I am thrilled to be practicing at Cole Miller PLLC since September 2009.  I am very active in local bar associations, including the Fairfax Bar Association, Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, and Virginia Women Attorneys Association.
