About me

I love my job!   I have found a way to help people in my community and throughout Oregon.  I enjoy assisting clients through the maze of insurance laws and getting them the best possible settlement.  I find the art of negotiating with insurance companies on behalf of my clients rewarding, as well representing their interests in mediations, arbitrations and trials.  When not pursuing the above endeavors, I enjoy living in Bend and all that it entails, such as mountain biking, skiing, and hiking with my two dogs.  I feel very fortunate to be able to pursue a career that I love while getting to live in such a beautiful place.
