Please provide a description of your practice.

I currently conduct investigations of complaints involving employees and/or customers of the Clerk’s Office. My previous legal experience was in tort litigation in the public and private sector.

Why are you a member of the WBAI?

One of my life goals has been to improve the position of women wherever I can. Being a member of the WBAI provides numerous opportunities for me to do that through networking with and mentoring women lawyers and law students of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and persuasions

What are you most looking forward to this fall?

Witnessing the Election of the First Woman to the Presidency of these United States!

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I was a French major in college; I am currently refreshing my French and learning Spanish using the DuoLingo app. I also love shopping for great sales—clothes, food, anything/everything!
