I have substantial experience in employment law, as an attorney and as a human resources director. Prior to joining The Law Center, I acted as a private consultant to a Madison-based health care IT consulting firm.
I also dealt with issues of employment law during my 12 years at Vivent Health, formerly the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW) and AIDS Network, first as a staff and lead attorney, then as the Director of Legal Services, and finally as the Director of HR. My work included issues of employment discrimination.
Besides employment law, I also have a special interest in school law, LGBTQ rights, and international adoption. I have also run my own specialty law firm, which focused on high-impact litigation involving animal rights.
