About me

I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Connecticut in 2005 with a Bachelors of Science in Human Development and Family Studies, with honors. In 2008, I graduated magna cum laude and order of the curia from Capital University Law School, in Columbus, Ohio.


 


Along with receiving my law degree, I received a certification in Children and Family Law. During law school, I received the Cali Book Award for Academic Excellence in Secured Transactions and worked as a Legal Research and Writing Teaching Assistance for first year law students.  I also volunteered at the National Center for Adoption Law and Policy and worked as a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Peggy Walker in Douglasville, Georgia. While in Georgia, I assisted Judge Walker in creating a nationally presented project called Putting the Pieces Together: Promoting Resiliency in Children from Birth to Three. This presentation educated professionals on the best practices and procedures to meet the unique needs of the youngest children in foster care, by promoting safety, permanency and resiliency.


 


I completed an intensive interdisciplinary collaborative practice training sponsored by the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois in November of 2009.  I have also taken several Level II Collaborative trainings.   As a Collaborative Professional, I am trained to assist parties in settling family conflicts without going to Court.
