I have always been an animal lover- perhaps that’s why I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 15 years old.
I also love books, so being a lawyer fulfills my need to be a book worm and perform legal research, but it also allows me the ability to debate and argue my case. When I am not practicing law as a creditor’s rights advocate or representing clients in civil litigation matters, I am volunteering my available time to animal rescue groups or assisting a national organization for animal related civil litigation.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, cum laude, I went on to complete my law degree from Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. I am currently licensed to practice law in Wisconsin, and I’m also admitted in all of the federal District Courts in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana. I have over 15 years of experience in practicing law and ten of those years involve experience as a creditor’s attorney primarily focused on bankruptcy and civil litigation.
I’m a member of the Wisconsin Bar Association and the Association of Women Lawyers. In addition, I have spoken on the topics of foreclosure and bankruptcy at several continuing legal education seminars.
