What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?

There have been a number of experiences that have made me be a better attorney - whether it be learning from my mentors, listening to judges, attendling CLE's or just practicing law each and every day.  

What makes your law firm unique?

Our law firm is unique in that we offer a one stop shop for clients for all of their legal needs in the areas in which we practice.  As it relates to family law, we can handle prenuptial agreements, divorces, custody disputes, determination of spousal support/and or child support, step-parent adoptions, and post-decree motions such as contempts and modifications.  As it relates to real estate, not only does our practice handle transactional work (i.e. drafting and reviewing contracts, drafting and reviewing leases, drafting and reviewing loan documents, setting up entities, etc.), but our office also handles full-fledged civil litigation as well.  


Describe your personal interest and hobbies.

Outside of the practice of law, I love spending time with my husband, our two children, and our dog.  We enjoy playing tennis, golf and riding bikes with each other

Describe your charitable activities.

I am very active in our community.  Currently, I am the Chairperson for the Columbus Bar Association Real Property Committee for the 2019/2020 year, a mentor in the Ohio Supreme Court Lawyer to Lawyer Mentoring Program, and a member of Columbus Bar Association, Ohio State Bar Association and Ohio Women's Bar Association.  I am also a girl scout troop leader, the fundraising chair for the PTO at Cassingham Elementary, a volunteer at Meals on Wheels, a Member of the Bexley Women's Club and the prior publicity chair for the Bexley House and Garden Tour 2018-2020.  Additionally, I was a member of the Women's Board for March of Dimes, 2017 and 2018, a Founding Member of Strike Out Thyroid Cancer, 2009-2013, and a Runway Participant for Canine Companions for Independence, 2017.
