Why Family Law?
I am a relationship-oriented person whether it’s friends, family, co-workers or clients. I have compassion for what others are going through, and I like helping clients navigate through a process that can be very emotionally draining, scary, and foreign to them. Sometimes just helping them better understand the process is all they need to feel better about the situation. It can help them gain the personal strength they need.
When I am not at work, I love to spend time with my husband, and our corgie. I love spending time with my family when they are in town. My husband and I love to travel and get away every chance we get. I love to cook and bake, and I am known for bring treats to the office for co-workers to enjoy!
