Personal Note

When I was trying to decide upon a career while in college, I initially leaned toward the medical field. However, I also enjoyed debating issues and the mental gymnastics the law requires. I decided upon a career in law and I was drawn to workers' compensation because every case necessarily includes medical issues. In workers' compensation, I get to experience both of my interests.

One of my greatest accomplishments is being a mom to my two daughters and son. It has truly been a blessing to raise such amazing kids. My husband teaches high school English and coaches football, basketball and track. Between the four of them, we are always in the middle of at least two to three sports seasons through out the year, at the same time. We also enjoy exploring the exquisite nature around the North Valley area.
