I am an attorney focusing her practice on Trust, Estate & Elder Law. But that doesn’t really explain what I do.
As a mother to young children and daughter to aging parents, I worry about the future and know that my clients do, too. I consider it an honor and privilege to help clients by listening to their worries and transforming them into peace of mind.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, I proudly served 4 years in the United States Air Force (actually, I was 3rd generation USAF!). Thereafter, I worked for the Department of Defense while simultaneously attending college. In 1999, I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, summa cum laude. I then attended the University of Texas School of Law, where I became an editor on the Review of Litigationand taught Legal Research and Writing. After law school, I clerked for a judge in Maryland and eventually made my way across the country to Colorado. (That was 13 years ago....and I proudly call Colorado my home.) I practiced family law until 2006, when I hung my shingle focusing exclusively on estate planning, probate/estate administration, Elder Law, and more. This year I also became Adjunct Faculty at the Center for Paralegal Studies at the Community College of Aurora, teaching Trust & Estate Law for Paralegals (I have always wanted to give back by teaching).
Family is everything: I am married to a very supportive husband, and I have 3 young children and 2 adorable dogs. In my spare time, I am with them: hiking, cooking or just enjoying family time. I also enjoy reading, yoga and traveling (and scuba diving!).
I look forward to meeting and working with you and your family – memorializing your legacy and providing you and your loved ones with peace of mind.
