Lawyer Overview

I have been practicing law since 1983 and enjoy the challenge and especially the people involved in each case - both my clients and opposing counsel. I entered the legal profession to help others and solve problems. My ideals, while often tested, remain the same: Helping individuals in their businesses, big and small, and in their personal lives, communicate better and solve legal issues in creative ways. Sometimes solutions are found by going to Court or Arbitration. But, more often, deals are made and creative legal solutions are constructed in a way that brings closure, resolution and satisfaction.

INTERESTS: I enjoy singing, piano, hiking, golfing, swimming, skiing, reading and yoga. I am a certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church and I am a Sunday School preschool teacher. My husband and I have two children, Allan (a C.U. graduate) and Sierra (attending Purdue University). We are both active in music, mission and outreach through Green Mountain United Methodist Church, pro bono legal services for Denver Urban Ministries as well as Metro Volunteer Lawyers.
