Those who know me well say that I’m:

  • A driving force and Tenacious – A recent cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment and side effects have only strengthened my determination to help clients facing serious illness and disability.  I know what you’re going through because I’ve been (and am) in your shoes.
  • Direct – I say what I mean and I mean what I say.  Because I am clear in my words and actions, it’s easy for people to understand what I say and to trust me.

I chose to become an attorney because of my early experience helping my father through a 26-year battle with Parkinson’s disease, as well as taking care of my elderly mother as she ages.  I’ve always been a caretaker by nature, and going to law school provided me with the education and ability to help those facing complex and emotionally difficult life situations.

I believe that we all have within us the strength necessary to face even the most harrowing circumstances.  It’s just a matter of mining that strength.

I can change and grow as a person.  I never want to stop learning.

My greatest accomplishments are our two sons.  They are truly fascinating people.  I like to joke that I thought that the best part of being a parent was raising the kids but I find now that I also like hanging around my adult children.

I’m making a difference by helping people with illnesses and disabilities live as fully and vibrantly as they did before their diagnosis.

Quote me:  Nobody stands alone.  Cancer made me realize that you can’t go through a long-term illness by yourself.  We all need families and communities to support us.

My next challenge is to develop a life care planning approach that encompasses clients through various stages in life – from healthy/able-bodied to illness/disability to death.

On my bookshelf:  Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One by Dr. Joe Dispenza.

Seven words that describe me:  Fighter, survivor, wife, mother, daughter, traveler, compassionate.

One thing most people don’t know about me:  I accepted a scholarship from the University of Minnesota to live and study in Hungary.

When I’m not working, I am an avid reader, I enjoy skiing, traveling and spending time with my husband and sons.
