About me

I bring a combination of unique skills to the legal world. I spent almost 10 years working for big corporations in the competitive intelligence field. My work took me all over the United States and Europe, where I worked as a private investigator for different research projects. 

 I graduated, cum laude, with a law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. While attending law school, I worked as a research assistant for the Michigan Supreme Court. I also did an externship with a criminal defense attorney in Atlanta.

 After law school, I worked for a personal injury attorney and two criminal defense attorneys. This is where I learned the “ins and outs” of the legal system.

 As a single mother, I raised two children (who are now out on their own) while working and going to school. I know how difficult life can be, especially when you are facing legal challenges. I never allowed the fact that I was a single mom to stop me from achieving my goals.
