As an experienced paralegal, I have worked with attorneys on liability insurance defense, medical malpractice, construction negligence, nursing home abuse, wrongful death, and personal injury cases. I have assisted attorneys with all phases of a case, from fact investigation, document preparation, discovery, abstracting deposition transcripts and summarizing medical records to online legal research, case management, and providing assistance at trial. I find the paralegal profession both challenging and very rewarding.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College Chicago in Communications. I received my paralegal certificate from Robert Morris College in Orland Park, Illinois from their ABA-Approved Paralegal Studies Program. I am a current member of the Illinois Paralegal Association ("IPA") where I act as Chairperson of both the Freelance and Family Law Sections and the Co-Chairperson for the Committee to Investigate Paralegal Regulation. I am also a current member of The National Federation of Paralegal Associations ("NFPA"). As a member of both the IPA and NFPA, I am bound by the Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility and Guidelines of those organizations.
