SANDUSKY, OHIO PERSONAL INJURY & CONSUMER PROTECTION
One of the most powerful experiences of my life was working with the United Nations in Sierra Leone and Liberia. It’s where I began my career and where I truly understood the importance of basic human rights and how I can make an impact. When I see a wrong, I believe it needs to be righted. People who have no voice or are underserved by society deserve to have a champion in their corner. There is nothing more satisfying than achieving a just result for my clients.

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.” — Hannah More 

The moment I knew I wanted to be a lawyer: I was five years old, and I remember my grandmother offering my brother salt and pepper shakers in the shape of barristers. I decided right then I would practice law with my family.  

My inspiration in life: Is my grandmother, who has faced every one of life’s challenges with a smile and a sprinkle of humor

When I’m not helping clients: You’ll find me at my kids sporting events and extracurriculars. When I can steal some time for myself, I do some hardcore Crossfit or a bike ride.

Favorite sports teams: Miami University. It’s all about the U!

My advice for young professionals: Do your best. ALWAYS.
