About me

I spend my free time with my family.   When the weather is nice, we like to go to the beach or hike the trails in Mairn County.  I like to travel.  I love Paris.  I love Hawaii.  I don't have "hobbies" unless you count all of the times that I have tried to learn to knit.  However, I do enjoy puttering around my garden listening to my ipod. 

I grew up in Fresno.  My dad is an almond grower.  I always say that Fresno was a nice place to grow up.  We skied in the winter and spent our summers in Santa Cruz.   I have lived in the Bay Area ever since I left Fresno to go to college.  I have lived in Marin County for almost thirty years.

    As an opposing counsel in a potentially difficult divorce in Marin County, Kate was a pleasure to work with. Collectively we negotiated the terms of our clients' Marital Settlement Agreement and prepared and filed the court forms required to get legally divorced in California in less than three weeks. Always pleasant to speak with and responds promptly.
