What is the problem you are best at solving for your clients?

My clients and their families are often stressed because of the important decisions and transitions they are facing. I value being able to serve as part of an empathetic support system, all while assisting them as they address and make important life decisions for themselves and their loved ones.

What excites you about your work and the contribution you make to the ELET team?

After working in the personal injury and workers’ compensation areas of law for the last several years, it is exciting to learn a new area of law.  Being a member of the ELET team allows me to develop relationships with entire families rather than just one individual.

What do you love most about ELET?

I love that my fellow co-workers are some of the most compassionate and giving individuals, and that we are able to provide much-needed services for our community and surrounding counties.

Where can we find you when you’re not working?

When I am not working, I am spending time with family, friends, and my two four-legged babies.  I enjoy attending concerts, traveling, and almost any type of sporting event.

Fun facts:

I enjoy riding my motorcycle, and am a huge hockey fan.
