I am a Practice Management Advisor with the Oregon State Bar Professional Liability Fund (PLF). I provide confidential law practice management services to Oregon attorneys. My goal is to help attorneys reduce their risk of malpractice claims, enhance their enjoyment of practicing law, and improve their client relationships through clear communication and efficient delivery of legal services. Prior to joining the PLF, I wrote articles and delivered CLE programs on law practice management topics for the Multnomah Bar Association, located in Portland, Oregon. I have been a member of the Oregon bar since 1986 and began my career in private practice.
I am an Oregon native, lover of the outdoors, Pac 12 football fan, and step-mom. I enjoy canoeing, hiking, and biking with my husband. I am passionate about sustainability and love my 2009 Jetta TDI diesel.
