I have lived in Rochester Hills for 15+ years with my husband and two children. I really enjoy the sense of community in this area.  It is nice to be able to walk to mail a letter, grab a latte, or bike on the  Paint Creek or Clinton River trails. I am active in the community, my children's schools, and participate in various professional, social, and charitable events. 

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from James Madison College at Michigan State University, where I studied political theory and minored in studio art.  Fast forward a few year later when I would return to East Lansing and receive my Juris Doctorate degree from Michigan State University College of Law.  

I have practiced civil law for over 20 years. My practice began with insurance defense work, included a position as in-house counsel, and now focuses solely on estate planning. I truly enjoy the opportunities that estate planning has given me to talk and work with with different people on a plan that addresses their concerns and identifies their wishes. 


My law practice is rooted in the belief that by taking a little time now and planning ahead, you not only help yourself, but inevitably you help your family and loved ones.  Your proactive approach, allows for those you leave behind to have a roadmap with directions you wrote to guide them.
