I was born and raised in Central New York and have practiced law at Legal Services of Central New York, Inc. for most of my career. I have practiced in many areas, but for the past 10 years, I have built a Consumer Law practice at LSCNY, Inc. It is the joy and honor of my life to serve the area I so cherish; and to raise my children here as well. Dr. Cornell West, a Theological Professor of Philosophy, which is incidentally what I received my B.A. in, once said, “justice is what love looks like in public…” The girl whose Civic Achievement Award from 1991 proudly hangs in her office, just really wanted to be a part of what that meant. I am fully blessed to have that opportunity.
