Raised in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, I graduated from Oconomowoc High School in 1997. In search of a small liberal arts education, and intent upon getting away from home and becoming independent, I attended Kalamazoo College in Michigan. I graduated in 2001 with a major in political science. In 2004, I graduated from Drake University Law School in Des Moines, Iowa. After passing the Wisconsin bar exam, I joined Swendson/Menting Law Ltd., in Oconomowoc.
I started out practicing in the family law area. I was a court appointed Guardian ad Litem and did divorce work, and quickly realized that this was not my calling. I have found my niche in estate planning, probate and trust administration, and family and asset protection.
My goal is to provide excellent customer service. I focus on establishing good communication, offering helpful advice, and providing clear explanations. I want my clients to trust me and value my services.
