Degrees and Experience
I am a trained mediator, mediation coach and attorney with more than 15 years of experience in the court system, where I have specialized in family law including custody and parenting plans, child support and alimony agreements, and divorce and-post divorce issues. My mediation approach is informed by my educational and professional experience, which includes a career in journalism, a fellowship at the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, nearly six years at one of Boston’s top law firms, and public service as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Charlotte A. Perretta of the Massachusetts Appeals Court and the Honorable Francis X. Spina of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.
I am a native of the South Shore of Massachusetts. I believe mediation should center on moving couples away from emotionally reactive positions towards rational decision-making that focuses on each family’s financial future and children’s well-being. My goal in every divorce mediation is to resolve emotional, financial and child-related concerns relating to the divorce in order to transition couples from fear and frustration to optimism and problem-solving through the mediation process.
I attended the Woodward School for Girls in Quincy, where I was valedictorian of the Class of 1988. After graduating from Boston University’s College of Communication with a degree in journalism, I worked for six years as a reporter and editor with MPG Newspapers in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and the Mariner Community Newspapers in Marshfield, Massachusetts. I also hosted my own television show on Adelphia Cable. I graduated magna cum laude from Suffolk University Law School in May 2001. I was a co-author of How Divorce Lawyers (And Clients) Can Benefit From Working With Mediators, which I published with attorneys Donald G. Tye and John A. Fiske in the Massachusetts Lawyers Journal in 2011.
