Biography

I was born and raised in Ventura, California and lived here a majority of my life. I majored in business management at San Diego State University and soon there after started working for Citigroup in Jacksonville, Florida. I worked as a project manager for Citigroup and traveled extensively throughout the world. I even ended up relocating to the Philippines for a year which was an opportunity of a lifetime. After living in the Philippines, I moved back to Ventura and began my legal career.

I started by volunteering at the Ventura County District Attorney’s office and the Coalition to End Family Violence as a Victim Advocate. Next I started law school at the Southern California Institute of Law and really enjoyed it. I was able to find a position as a law clerk with a firm in Westlake Village where the flexible schedule allowed me to finish law school and take the California bar exam. After passing the bar, I received a promotion to associate attorney and focused on estate planning, personal injury and bankruptcy cases. I really enjoyed helping families with their estate planning and decided to start my own practice where I could focus solely on estate planning and ensuring that young families know how to protect their family. I find great personal and professional satisfaction in helping parents create estate plans that provide them with that peace of mind. Family dynamics are always evolving and I built this practice with growing families in mind. My goal is to create lasting relationships with my clients and to always be available to answer any questions that may arise in the future.
