About Me

My legal practice focuses on helping people plan for what is most important to them. Special attention is paid to health care needs and gifting of assets.

Previously, I have worked in complex litigation, served as corporate counsel, and led a business.

My education includes a Bachelor’s degree in sociology from Northwestern University, Juris Doctor and LL.M. degrees from McGeorge School of Law, and a Doctorate in Bioethics from Loyola University Chicago.

I volunteer at the following charitable organizations in Ventura County: Ojai Valley Community Hospital Foundation; Quality Assurance Committee, Community Memorial Health System; Rotary Club of Ojai Education Foundation; Landon Pediatric Foundation; and community member of Ethics Committee and the IRB, Ventura County Medical Center.
