About me

I am an Ohio State Bar Association certified specialist in Family Law. Only approximately 80 attorneys of the nearly 40,000 attorneys in the state of Ohio hold this certification. I focus my practice to help families in the areas of custody, divorce/dissolution/legal separation, child/spousal support, domestic violence (both civil and criminal), juvenile matters and adoptions.


I recieved my bachelor's degree in Business and Organizational Communications as an honors student  from the University of Akron and my juris doctorate from the Univerisity of Florida. I am a member of the Akron, Ohio and Clevland Metro Bar Associations.


I am originally from central Ohio. After I received my undergraduate degree, I migrated south to enjoy some sunshine. After law school, I returned home to raise a family in beautiful Northeast Ohio. I live and work in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park with my husband and three children.
