I have over three decades of experience working in the legal field assisting attorneys and their clients. I have substantial experience in the following areas:

  • Drafting of complex estate and trust documents
  • Funding trusts
  • Probate, estate administration and trust administration
  • Preparation of estate tax returns, fiduciary income tax returns, and gift tax returns
  • Formation of family businesses and private foundations

I enjoy working with the firm’s clients to accomplish many of the day-to-day tasks critical to effective estate planning and also assisting clients with the legal and financial matters that must be handled after the loss of a loved one.

Outside of the law firm, I have held many leadership roles through the Rocky Mountain Paralegal Association, including President, Vice President of Policy, NFPA Primary and Board Adviser, CBA Representative and Chair of the Probate Section.
