About me

When I am not practicing law, I enjoy reading and writing mystery novels. I am also a novice runner and completed a half-marathon in January of 2010, as well as numerous 5k and 10k races.


I have three children and three step-children (all of whom are amazing, brilliant, special and wonderful!), so I understand first-hand the issues of divorce, remarriage, co-parenting, step-parenting, etc.
