Throughout my 30+ year career as a family law attorney and mediator, I have focused on creating constructive alternatives to litigation for separating and divorcing couples. By providing my clients with a positive environment and approach during a difficult time, we can better reach solid, workable and beneficial agreements. Through reducing and resolving conflict, parties can transition by moving on, and not just moving out.
I have been an attorney and mediator for over years, as well as a mediation trainer, collaborative law trainer, and educator for other professionals involved with helping clients seek more peaceful and problem-solving approaches to family transitions.
I earned my law degree from University of Puget Sound School of Law (now Seattle University School of Law) in 1992, and my Bachelors of Science Degree from Guilford College in Greensboro, NC in 1986.
