Beginnings by Chicago.
Favorite Sports Team:

I love taking random “get in the car and go” road trips with my kids when our schedules allow them.
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

Favorite Thing to Do for Fun:

I completed my AAS in Paralegal Studies in less than 2 years while supporting myself and my son, an infant at that time, on 3 part-time jobs.
Why I Work Here:
As a Paralegal, part of my job is to help a client make sense out of the discovery process, which can be tedious, cumbersome, and overwhelming; adding to the stress they are already feeling. This Firm’s approach is a culture shift in the practice of family law, one I believe is long overdue. After I met Brian and the rest of the TRIBE, I knew I wanted to be part of the Divorce With Dignity culture in practice here.
What I Love Most About my Job:
Knowing that, because of what I do, a client has some peace of mind in the middle of what is probably the most stressful time in their life. I also like the challenge of piecing together the financial picture of a complex case.
