I chose a career in family law because I wanted to be in an area where I could feel like I was helping people. I think a lot of our clients just want to be heard and being able to listen and help them work through this difficult time is something I enjoy doing.
I went to college at the University of Northern Colorado as well attended the University of Rhode Island for a year and graduated with a Degree in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. After graduating, I worked at a juvenile detention center and then decided I wanted to pursue further education in the legal field and enrolled in the Denver Paralegal Institute. I began working as a family law paralegal in 2000.
I think that having been working in family law for the past 17 years I have acquired the ability to work well with the clients. I understand what is expected of them as well as myself in assisting them. I also think some clients feel more comfortable speaking with a paralegal then the attorney as they can be intimidating and I want them to know they have that option.
I am looking forward to working with this firm and what it represents.
When I’m not at work I am spending time with my family which includes keeping up with my 3 children and their busy social lives.
