I enjoy the practice of workers’ compensation law as it allows me to use all of my legal and educational training to solve problems. I get to meet new & interesting people. Working with the Firm and running an office allow me to use my social skills and team building experience to provide excellent results for clients and on a personal level. In 15 years of practice, I have seen the way in which the law has changed radically & rapidly. I look forward to embracing the challenges it provides.
I have been very lucky to be able to travel all over the world and our country. I look forward to being able to share that love of travel, history, and new experiences with my children. I grew up an athlete, playing soccer, basketball, golf, and baseball. As a kid, I spent a lot of time at the beach and in the ocean. While not quite as active as I once was, I have enjoyed coaching and playing with my kids, as well cheering them on.
