I started out my career as a legal secretary working for a very reputable firm in Napa. After many years, I decided to go to law school because I felt that I could do so much more to help people with the law degree. I continued working and was fortunate enough to be hired on as an attorney at my old law firm. I always knew what kind of lawyer I wanted to be prior to law school, which helped me concentrate on only estate planning and tax related courses.


After 29 years with the same employer, decided to leave and start my own practice with a business colleague, Mike Manfred. We are both certified specialists in estate planning, probate and trust law and it just seemed like a good fit.


I love what I do and I try my best to go the "extra mile" for my clients. I have been practicing for 10 years now, but I have had the fortune of being exposed to thousands of estate plans during my legal secretary years, which helps clients in coming up with solutions to their estate planning problems.
