I love being a family law attorney and am dedicated to serving my clients. My practice includes nearly all aspects of family law. I serve on the State Bar of Michigan's Council for the Family Law Section and have received the Family Law Certificate Program certificate through the Institute of Continuing Education and the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan. I am an active member of our State Bar, and serve on the Domestic Violence Committee and the Council's Membership committee. I have previously served on the Practice Management Committee and subcommittee's of the State Bar of Michigan Family Law Section. I have been trained as a collaborative divorce attorney and am a member of the Up North Collaborative Divorce Practice Group. I am grateful for the opportunity to have served as the founding Chair of the Traverse Bay Children's Advocacy Center (TBCAC), a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing positive change to how we respond to children and their families who have been victimized by sexual or physical abuse. I also enjoyed serving as a member of the Traverse City Track Club (TCTC) which holds the the Bay Shore Marathon, and sponsors Girls on the Run among other area races. My interest in children and families inspired my participation on the original board of the Great Lakes Children's Museum which has now matured to a very successful organization since my time on the Board. I currently serve by Governor appointment to the Children's Trust Fund, a State Board that provides child abuse prevention services funding throughout the State of Michigan.
I strive to use my experience and outside the box thinking to help our clients with their goals. We welcome your call to our office. We are here to help.
