I’m an Estate Planning Attorney & Organized Mom, cherishing my time with clients by building life-long professional friendships. In my practice I strive to treat clients and prospective clients with respect and empathy. I promptly return calls and emails and I use ordinary language and stories to explain how I can help.
My world revolves around my family – my husband, a daughter, and twin boys – and I know I’m willing to do anything to ensure they will be taken care of, no matter what, if something were to happen to me. I believe most parents feel the same way.
In one sentence, my job is to ensure families don’t collapse after the disability or passing of a loved one.
On a professional note, I attended Colgate University where I graduated magna cum laude. During college I studied in Washington, DC, and worked at the White House during my “abroad” semester. Following college I worked for a year at a large pharmaceutical litigation firm in New York City and then headed back to Texas to attend the University of Texas School of Law. After practicing briefly in Texas, I headed to the mountains of northern New Mexico – yes there are mountains in New Mexico! – to the small ski-and-golf town of Angel Fire, where I met and married by husband Tom. We moved to Colorado in 2011, and I’m now licensed in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico.
On a personal note, I’m a wife and a mom. What my children bring to this experience for me is the appreciation that estate planning is something my husband and I have done for the people we love most, not for ourselves. We won’t be here (or won’t know) when our plan’s wheels are turning. Our children and loved ones will be the ones who benefit from our planning, and there’s nothing more selfless or caring I can imagine. I cherish the opportunity to meet with families like you who want to achieve this same goal!
Outside of Wills & Wellness, I love to spend time with my family and enjoy my chef husband’s amazing cooking. And I’m an avid reader of non-fiction accounts of Mt. Everest adventures and K2 expeditions and history.
I love what I do. I love to help and serve people. I very much look forward to meeting you and your family and becoming your trusted family advisor!
