“As a college student I was a sprinter for the BYU track team and a member of the Conference Championship team for 3 consecutive years. Studying Psychology was fascinating for me as I have been an observer and analyzer of people for a long back as I can remember. I also had the privilege to spend time abroad between my Junior and Senior year by doing humanitarian service in the Central American countries of Costa Rica and Panama.
My husband and I have been married for over 31 years. Together we have raised our 4 children; one son and 3 daughters, who have brought us much joy. We are now Grandparents of 4 sweet grandchildren; one boy and 3 girls- just like our now grown children. I love being a Grandma!!!
I spent over a decade as a stay-at-home Mother while raising my own family which has given me great insight into the struggles and challenges of Mothering. It’s a hard job and at times can seem overwhelming.
Having loving relationships in families is what its all about. I am a stanch defender of Marriage & Family. I will fight as hard as my clients do to save their relationships. The aim is to have as much joy and happiness in our human relationships as is possible. I believe it is within our reach to achieve.
We settled in Tampa over 30 years ago when we were expecting our first child. Now I can’t imagine living without the sun and the beach!”
