Where I'm From
I was born on May 1, 1962 in Inglewood, California, one of three children. We continued to live in Los Angeles County until I was 6 years old. Our family then relocated to Fountain Valley California in 1968. I have enjoyed living in Orange County California since that time and graduated from Fountain Valley High School in 1979. While in high school I was involved in sports, music and was also a cheerleader.
I began my upper education at California State University Long Beach, where I double majored obtaining a degree in Business Management and Marketing in 1983. While I enjoyed my business law classes I decided after college to enroll in Western State University Law School where I obtained my Juris Doctorate degree in 1986, graduating with honors, and a member of Delta Theta Phi.
Before graduating from law school, I began my legal career as a clerk with the law firm of Allen & Flatt. Once I graduated from law school and received my law license, I became an attorney for the firm. After the retirement of Robert Allen, I became the managing attorney. The firm has been in existence for over 35 years, and I have been a part of it for nearly 25 years. I am proud of the firm because of the successes we have accomplished for our clients. My main passion is to help others and this firm has been a perfect fit. Given my experience in personal injury claims, I involve myself in virtually every personal injury case at the firm. We have always strived and achieved excellence, fairness and responsiveness to our clients.
I have been married to a wonderful man for over 20 years and have two children, Kelsey and Shane. The kids have kept us busy over the years and we feel very blessed as they have turned into two wonderful young adults. My passion in life has always been sports. I love all sports, and have been a faithful fan to our local teams the Angels, Ducks and Lakers. I am also a huge Steeler fan.
