What kind of issues do you find most interesting in your practice committee?
The
constant changing of rules in each county department of job and family services— each
county is so different.
What would your practice committee want other attorneys to understand about
your specialty?
Elder law is a diverse area of law that is constantly changing.
How has being a part of your committee made a difference in your own practice?
Being able to openly discuss issues with other local elder law attorneys has provided me
with so much insight and knowledge. As a young attorney, this has been invaluable.
What is the most important project for your practice committee this year?
The
spring elder law seminar
When I’m not in office, I’m…
running, reading or spending time with family and
friends.
Favorite quote that motivates me is…
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve
learned about life, it goes on.” Robert Frost
My favorite place to go in Cincinnati is…
Fountain Square because it is so full of life.
My heroes are…
my father and my fiancé because my father has overcome so many
challenges and taught me a lot about life, and my fiancé selflessly serves our country.
