I am a West Michigan native, and was raised in the Greater Grand Rapids area. I chose to become a lawyer so I can help people understand and navigate through the legal system. I am passionate about fighting vigorously for my client’s best interests. I am honored to be serving my local community.
While pursuing my law degree, I worked in the areas of family law and criminal law. While furthering my education, I participated in Trial Advocacy and Moot Court. This experience gave me a working knowledge of advocating on behalf of my clients in the Courtroom.
For the past several years prior to joining the MI Family Law Center I had been working at a small Grand Rapids law firm where I have been primarily handling family law cases.
When I am not practicing law, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, two kids, and two chihuahuas. I also enjoy running marathons, reading and going to the beach.
