Q&A
  • What previous experiences, prior to your work at Balch, influence your practice?

    Prior to working at Balch & Bingham, I was an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Ohio in the Health and Human Services Section, Assistant Regional Counsel for the US Department of Health and Human Services - Region VI, and Senior Legal Counsel for a healthcare technology company. These experiences gave me hands on experience trying complex cases on my own, and influenced my passion for litigation, especially in the healthcare field.

  • What do you find most exciting about your work?

    Being a litigator gives me the opportunity to help people in their greatest time of need. I am most excited about putting together the complex puzzle pieces of a case and creating a big picture that demonstrates clients' cases in a clear and concise manner. It is fun to engage with others and help them understand the things that matter most in a case.
