I was born in Long Beach, California, but was raised on New York’s Long Island, in the Village of Hewlett. I received my Bachelor of Arts from the University of South Florida in Tampa Florida. I did not aspire to become an attorney until I attended an internship with the Florida Department of Probation and Parole. This internship required that I attend the academy for new Probation and Parole officers, including both the self-defense courses and the substantive courses. It was the substantive courses taught by a local attorney that sparked my interest in becoming an attorney.
After graduating from the University of South Florida, I pursued by interest in the law at the Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg, PA. Since graduating from law school in 1997 I have gained experience in several different areas of the law, from real estate, landlord tenant, workers’ compensation, and business law. However, I have always maintained my ties to Real Estate Law. My first job after law school immediately thrust me into title work and conducting closings for residential real estate located in southern Pennsylvania.
In 2016, I moved to New York. As I did not hold a license to practice law in New York, I was fortunate to answer a job posting for a title examiner with Holler Law Firm, a small law firm in Milford, CT. I worked in the title department of Holler Law Firm until 2019 when I returned to Pennsylvania. One day I received a telephone call from George Holler asking that I return to the firm as an Attorney. In February 2020 I happily went home.
