Profession:Attorney, Mediator, and Parent Coordinator

I believe parties are best suited to make decisions about their future. Mediation offers the opportunity for parties to reach a workable solution with dignity. My role as the mediator is to facilitate settlement discussions and to help parties problem solve and consider alternative options to resolve their dispute.

Work Experience

I have focused my career on family law and school law. I began my career at a children’s law center representing children in high-conflict custody and divorce cases in 2011. I later joined Shuttleworth & Ingersoll in 2014. I enjoy working with families and students to help them make important decisions about their future.
