  • Partner


Elk River, MN





I am originally from Park Rapids, but have lived in many areas of the state. I focus on family law matters such as divorce, child support, custody, adoptions, and paternity.  I also handle a variety of estate planning and guardianship issues.  I have a reputation for carefully and compassionately assisting clients through difficult times in their personal lives.  I believe in small town customer service with big city attorney experience. I enjoy alpine skiing, camping, hiking, and spending time with my husband and our three children at northern Minnesota lakes.
