My Vision

To build a law firm that serves my clients and community honestly and with integrity, built on the idea that everyone deserves justice under the law. 

About me

Being an attorney was not my childhood dream. In 1983, I went to Kent State University to be an architect. I wasn't very good at it and since I had no backup plan, I dropped out in 1986. I got married, had a daughter, got divorced, got remarried to a guy with two awesome kids.

After the kids graduated from high school, I went back to Kent State and got my undergraduate degree in paralegal studies at the age of 50. I worked for two wonderful attorneys at a small firm but when they both decided to go solo, I had to find a new job. I decided to apply to law school. I took the LSAT and applied to the University of Akron School of Law. I had already decided that if I wasn’t accepted, I was just going to keep job hunting.

In March 2015, I was notified that I had been accepted to start in the fall. I was blown away! I told my husband that I had been accepted and he said "Well if you got in, you have to go". I began law school in the fall of 2015, worked full time and went to school part time at night and through the summers. There was never a break. In January 2019, I graduated with my juris doctorate. In February, I passed the Ohio bar exam first try. In May, I took my oath of office.

I know hard work. I'm a blue collar girl. I respect people who trust me with their hard earned money. If that's the kind of lawyer you want, contact me.
