I practice primarily in family-related mediations, including divorce and child custody as well as Parenting Coordination.
I earned a Paralegal Certificate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas approximately 20 years ago, and have worked primarily in the area of family law. More recently, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies, both from the University of Nevada, Reno. In June of 2015, I attained full certification status as a Family Life Educator through the National Council on Family Relations.
My knowledge of the law combined with my Family Life Educator certification make me uniquely qualified to conduct family matter mediations, including divorce and child custody and Parenting Coordination.
I am on the Family Services Program Mediation Panel for court-ordered mediations involving child custody in the Second Judicial District Court in Washoe County, Nevada, as well as on the court-approved roster of mediators for court-ordered child custody matters in the Ninth Judicial District Court in Douglas County, Nevada.
I am currently on the board of directors of the Nevada Dispute Resolution Coalition and was the 2015/2016 Co-Chair of the Family section of the Association for Conflict Resolution.
