I was born and raised in Ashtabula County, graduating from Jefferson Area High School in 1992. After high school, I attended and graduated from Cornell University with a BA in American Studies. Thereafter, I earned my juris doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1999. I returned to Ashtabula County and began my legal career at the Ashtabula County Prosecutor’s Office where I gained critical trial experience. I spent the next 5 years at Warren & Young in Ashtabula, Ohio, where I expanded my knowledge and experience to include insurance defense, real estate, estate planning, and general litigation. In September of 2007, I opened my own office in Jefferson, Ohio, with the goal of providing personal, professional and affordable legal services for my community.
