About me

I love living and practicing law in Sonoma County! I have been practicing law since 2002. I grew up in Novato, CA and attended Santa Rosa J.C. then transferred to Arizona State University studying English and Political Science for upper division and then staying for law school, but I always knew I would return to the Bay Area after law school.
I enjoy all aspects of litigation, but my favorite part of practicing law is the research and writing, especially in the appellate arena.

I enjoy exploring Sonoma County and Northern California with my husband Steve. I love traveling near and far when I can, (trying to get at least a few days of Snowboarding in each season), but also enjoy weekends at home with movies or a good book.
