My Story

My life experiences, training,  gifts and passions have all come together in my current vocation. I am from a large St. Paul family, all working together to support my parents in my Dad's advancing dementia. I was personally involved in a 7 year long estate administration, and a longer trust administration. I can relate to my clients' concerns for their aging parents, themselves, and their children.

Professionally, I worked in accounting and finance, practiced litigation law in a big law firm, and pursued Medicaid reimbursement at a medical device company. 

I was raised to value serving others. Currently, I volunteer for the Cancer Legal Line, at my church and my daughter's school. I have two grown, married children, two grandchildren and a teen daughter adopted from Korea. I am also happily engaged to be married fall 2017. 

I enjoy helping families protect their assets and their loved ones - meeting their goals while minimizing expense, conflict and expense.  I feel rewarded when my clients say they feel relieved to have their estate plan in place, and they enjoyed the process!
