I am blessed to have worked with kind, smart doctors, providers, and mental health professionals over the past 24 years. My early career started in front desk reception, back office management, and medical billing; so, unlike most attorneys, I have intimate knowledge about the challenges of healthcare settings. As a health lawyer, I combine my top-tier legal education with real world problem solving to help you tackle whatever obstacles come your way. I am licensed to practice law in California, Colorado, and Washington, as well as on federal matters that commonly affect healthcare practitioners.

I love working with lifetime learners so I take an educational approach to legal services to better empower you and your professional wellbeing. I am a certified life coach which enables me to tailor my approach to your specific goals, values, and objectives.

While you take care of patients, let me help take care of your legal services needs.
