Wanted to become a physician but the law became of interest to me in a freak accident where my 2 yr. old son Michael had pulled himself up onto a metal folding chair in Sunday School class and in doing so, the chair folded up on his finger, cutting it off. We rushed the lad to UC Davis Hospital where he was triaged behind those drunks who had fallen down after biting their lips etc., and I was enraged. Here was my little boy losing his finger as I struggled to hold the tip to the exposed bone, horrified watching as it dried out. At last a cart with saline went by and I grabbed it and began squirting the finger tip with saline. Ultimately he was seen and the finger was saved. However, when I wrote the LDS Church and asked if they would please remove all such sharp, folding chairs from their buildings to keep the same thing from happening again, i was poo-pooed and told that the Church is self-funded and does not have a liability policy, to which my response was "well isn't that too bad, because all I asked you to do is remove similar chairs to prevent a similar occurrence from repeating itself and all you tell me is "let us do our jobs." I was furious and vowed that day to sue the Church. It was this experience that led me to become an attorney. Too many people are victims of crimes and negligence. They are in need of an advocate. I have spent my career advocating for people.
Honors: Note Editor for the Journal of Public Health
Activities: Extensive studies into the history of the LDS Church which led me to ask to have my name removed.

401 Questions Answered
Q. My sister is getting a divorce, can her soon to be ex, make her pay a fee whenever he has to clean up after her?
A: The husband is guilty of manipulation and severe, emotional abuse of your sister and (probably) their son. Idaho, like most other states can give your sister a divorce for FAULT reasons, not just "irreconcilable differences" which is "no fault." IN a divorce, if your sister, puts on evidence like you have just related, she will get a divorce based on FAULT. FAULT, during the marriage is defined as "severe emotional and/or physical abuse," "chronic drunkenness," adultery, abandonment etc. and her abusive husband may find himself paying all of her attorney fees, or giving her more equity in the home they have to sell, than the abusive husband etc., as a means of punishing him for all the harm he did to his family, during their miserable marriage.
Q. Can I lose custody if my child is in daycare to much even if the judge mandated it?
A: As a litigator, what I constantly have to remind myself is that judges don't care how good my argument is to give my client custody, or how persuasive I am about the good things my client is doing etc., if it's not in the child's best interests. This is thE ONLY factor that the Court is allowed to look at. What amazes me is that the Magistrate Judge you were in front of, made the executive decision that putting your child in day care 5 days a week is too much; whereas perhaps a different Magistrate, somewhere else, might have decided that daycare 5 days a week was safer and healthier for the child, when compared to _____________________, you didn't say. But, for whatEVER reason(s), this judge listened to the evidence, and made the decision, that SOMETHING else was better for the child's emotional and/or physical health, than being in daycare 5 days a week. The fact that you are a single mother, doing the best you can, having to work 5 days a week, PROBABLY was taken into consideration, but it wasn't considered to be in your child's best interests. A story: that's undoubtedly why Idaho is known as having a "fast track" for adoption! I have seen a teenager, who lives with a crack or crank addicted mother and loves their mother, be adopted, even though they would rather live in squalor with this mother, who is "doing the best she can, at the moment," because a judge's ONLY consideration, certainly ISN'T what the parents necessarily want, unless the parents' "wants" coincide with what the judge believes is the child's best interests. And, the court's consideration in the above example was that it would be better to have this child suffer from abandonment and feelings of emptiness and abject loneliness, after the adoption, than to live another day with a drug addict mother. So, in that case, it didn't matter what the parent wanted or even what the child wanted, as long as the Court put this child out of immediate danger. It's a difficult thing, particularly when you're doing the best you can do, to not say, "that's good enough." But, if it comes to a court, it may not be "good enough." That is a very, tough break! I'm sorry.
Q. In Idaho how long does insurance have to assess damage from a partial loss home fire for a home owners insurance claim?
A: No set time, however, the insurance company will do its “due diligence,” and get their “findings” to all parties in “due time.” Most courts will not criticize an insurance company for taking too long, if there are questionable issues.
