Member: Akron Bar Association
I grew up in the Cleveland suburbs, earned Bachelor’s Degrees in Business Administration and Elementary Education from Kent State University and The University of Akron, and earned my law degree from The University of Akron School of Law in 2013. I have been a solo practitioner since December 2013.
My work includes consulting with clients of all ages, economic statuses, and walks of life customizing estate plans to ensure the best distribution of their estates after death. I also help grieving families navigate the process of probate and distribution when they have experienced the loss of a loved one. Finally, I serve as a Guardian ad Litem and represent parents and children in Abuse, Neglect and Dependency cases and Legal Custody cases.
I am passionate about the welfare of children. I love working as a Guardian ad Litem, and making court recommendations that will ensure my child clients' best interests are met.
I currently live with my partner of many years, Dave, and two dogs and five (count them!) cats. I have two grown children and two beautiful granddaughters. For fun, I like to swim, walk, watch great movies and play the piano (although I'm not very good at it!)
