Additional Information
More Information
I am a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law and have been representing clients in various areas of the law throughout the states of Kansas and Missouri for over 20 years. I am grateful to have built, alongside my husband, a very successful and prominent family law practice in Overland Park Kansas. Throughout my practice, I have dedicated a great amount of my time and efforts in serving on numerous boards, commissions, committees and task forces within the state and local bar associations. In addition to serving as one of the District 1 Board of Governors, I am also the President Elect for KBA’s Family Law Section and am past co-chair of the Diversity committee. I also serve as the Board liaison to the Kansas Board of Trustee’s. Locally, I serve on the family law bench bar committee for the Johnson County Bar Association where we recently modified and updated local guidelines that are used and referenced all over the state by Judges and practitioners alike. We also prepare and present continuing legal education to other practitioners on relevant and current issues that are facing our profession. In addition to my service to my local and state bar associations, I also serve the ABA as a presidential appointment on the Commission for Youth at Risk. I serve in so many professional capacities because I believe that our bar is only as strong as the service that we individually provide back to it.
Throughout my career, I have clerked for the Honorable W. Stephen Nixon, a Circuit Court Judge in Jackson County Missouri and given several lectures throughout Kansas and Missouri, including for continuing legal education credits, on the topics of probate, employment and housing discrimination and diversity. When I am not working, I am a passionate tennis player with a growing ambition for golf. I most enjoy spending time outdoors with my family. Most people have heard me say that I am tropical and love most things outdoors, including gardening, but this Kansas weather sends me into a light depression every winter. On weekends, I can be found serving in my church as a children’s church teacher or working at one of the local outreach centers helping meet the needs of the homeless or disadvantaged. I dreamed of being at attorney when I was 8 but I never could have imagined that God would take that dream and fulfill so many others through the life that I am so richly blessed to live! I can’t help but wake up each day and be thankful and ask how can I help someone else be better today!
