After graduating from Northwestern University and later, Loyola Law School, I entered the field of Criminal Law to defend individuals' 4th and 5th amendment rights. After several years in White Collar Criminal Defense, I joined the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office to gain experience in trial work and serve the public. As a prosecutor for nearly thirty years, I gave defendants the benefit of a doubt and a constructive second chance. In the course of many trials and written briefs, I learned the importance of clear and concise oral and written communication. I am passionate about showing others how to have fun creating and shaping a persuasive and clear written product whether a school essay, a college application or as a life skill. In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, travel, my dogs, reading and assisting screenwriting professionals produce winning works.
