GET TO KNOW ANE
Those who know me well say that I’m:
- Personable – I enjoy meeting new people and believe I can get along with anyone. I look for the good in each person and try to show my best each day. My co-workers and clients find me relatable on a personal level and easy to talk with regardless of the situation.
- Persistent – I will always keep at it and will not give up on my clients. There is no task too large for me and I will work my way through anything. If I do not have the answer myself, I am not afraid to reach out to my network of resources and ask for help.
- Loyal – I am a tried-and-true supporter of my friends and family. They know I will always be there for them and I am true to my word. I put the same effort into my work and consistently show up for my co-workers and clients.
I chose to become an attorney because I learned early on the value of supporting someone when you have the knowledge in a specific area. Estate planning and administration is not common knowledge and I want to be there for my clients to make their process easier and attainable. I witnessed my mother administer her cousin’s estate and the load that was lifted from her when she sought help from an estate planning attorney.
I can be there for you as much or little as you need. As an elder law attorney, I know each person and case is different. I customize my approach to fit your needs and understanding.
I believe everyone has something to teach me. I admire everyone from all walks of life and love hearing about each person’s experiences.
My greatest accomplishment was supporting my husband through medical school and residency while pursuing my goal of becoming an attorney and attending law school. Balancing a time in my life that required immense dedication from two people individually while still supporting each other, all while trying to have a “normal life,” has shown me that I can do anything if I put in the work.
I’m making a difference by helping my clients understand their options and guiding them in the decision that is best for them.
Quote me… “Don’t jump to conclusions.” I am a firm believer that we cannot let our minds think the worst and that we need to gather all of the facts before making a decision.
My next challenge is to start a vegetable garden. My grandparents had the most amazing garden when I was growing up that left me with lifelong memories of tending the garden and picking fruits and vegetables. I am hoping I inherited a bit of their green thumbs and can enjoy the fruits of my labor.
On my bookshelf is The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living, by Meik Wiking.
Seven words that describe me are kind, honest, fun, active, open, committed, trustworthy.
One thing most people don’t know about me is after college I got my Master’s in Early Childhood Education and taught in an underprivileged school in Phoenix, Arizona. I always knew I wanted to be an attorney, but I was not ready to go to law school right away. I love children and wanted to give back to a community in need. I learned invaluable lessons each day as a teacher.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my friends and family outdoors. I enjoy hiking, fly fishing and exploring new areas. I take every opportunity I can to travel and experience new cultures. When at home, I enjoy playing board games and doing puzzles.
