Those who know me well say that I’m:
- Responsible – I’m dependable in my work, in my relationships and in my approach to life in general. This means that I remain by your side every step of the way to make sure everything gets done well and on time. The word “shortcut” is not in my vocabulary.
- Thoughtful – As my client, you’re much more than a file or a case. You’re a real, valuable, unique person. I make an effort to get to know all parts of you – not just the parts that pertain to your case.
- Determined – I’m stubborn. In a good way. I don’t let things slip through the cracks, I follow through and bring matters to a conclusion. I work as hard as I have to in order to reach the right solution and I don’t get discouraged if things don’t turn our perfectly the first time.
I chose to become an attorney because of a series of events that led me down this path, some tragic and some serendipitous. When I was a child, my mother was involved in a head-on car collision that changed her life, as well as ours, forever. Issues like dealing with a loved one in a coma, brain surgeries, rehabilitation, personal injury lawsuits, guardianship, conservatorship, and disability all hit hard and fast. We dealt with them the best that we could. What is important is that as a daughter, attorney-in-fact and healthcare agent, I’ve gone through an experience that many of my clients go through before they come in to meet with me. What I can tell you is that I understand. More than you realize. I’ve been there, and in many ways, I’m still there today. I know what you’re going through, and I can help.
I believe that you reap what you sow. On some level, what you put out into the world will eventually come back to you.
I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.
My greatest accomplishment is my family. There’s nothing that brings me more joy than coming home to the ones I love.
I’m making a difference by knowing that I’ve made someone’s life better in some way. People who come to see me are often scared and anxious. Putting their worries to rest is truly a rewarding experience.
Quote me: “You can do whatever want to do. You just have to be willing to work hard.”
My next challenge is creating (and maintaining) a balance between my parenting, caretaking and attorney responsibilities.
On my bookshelf: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Seven words that describe me: Nurturing, listener, disciplined, organized, active, compassionate, reliable.
One thing most people don’t know about me: I’m a science geek. For years after college I worked as a research assistant studying heart development in frogs and chicks.
When I’m not working, these days you can probably find me at a Little League game or other kids sporting event cheering on one of my three children in their activity of the moment.
