Divorce and Family Law Attorney
I was born in Massachusetts, but I moved as a toddler to my childhood home of Erie, Pennsylvania.
My secondary education started when I left for college in North Carolina at Duke University. After law school at The University of Michigan. I spent several years living in Chicago, Illinois before moving to Seattle, Washington where I lived for more than a decade.
At the beginning of 2023, I moved to Florida with my husband and two-year-old daughter. This move brought us closer to family, increasing our daughter’s all-important grandparent time, and more sunshine!
