SANDUSKY, OHIO PERSONAL INJURY & CONSUMER PROTECTION

I’ve known I wanted to be a lawyer since I was a young girl, listening to my father talk about cases and trials at the dinner table. Fairness has always been my driving force — knowing that no one ever deserves or wants to be in a situation where they need an attorney. I believe that one of the greatest joys in life is interacting with and helping other people, and it’s this knowledge that I take with me to my practice every day. We want our clients to know that we are in this battle together.

Inspiration in my life: My father. Since I was a young girl, I would hear him talk about cases and trials at the dinner table. It is what inspired me to be a lawyer.

When I’m not helping clients: You can find me outdoors! I love spending time with my family being active and in the fresh air whenever possible.

My advice for young professionals: Find time to do things that are only for you and stay physically active.

I like giving back because: it’s the right thing to do. Simple as that.

My greatest accomplishments: The two most majestic experiences of my life are skydiving and peering down a ski slope in the Swiss Alps.
