Comments on Profession
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.
