I represent clients in every aspect of estate, trust and probate administration, and estate planning. In addition, through my Elder Law practice, I advise clients in long-term care planning, government benefits, disability planning including special and supplemental needs trusts, along with an extensive practice area in guardianship, conservatorship, and contested probate and trust administration matters.
Long-term care planning can be daunting – there are so many puzzle pieces, questions, and ‘what if’s.’ I approach every client interaction with empathy and compassion to help plan for the future, with the goal of giving clients peace of mind and ensuring they have what they need. One of my favorite aspects of my work is interacting and learning from different generations. I have learned so much from the elder community and truly enjoy helping juggle all the components of long-term care planning for individuals and families alike.
Outside of work, my husband and I are excited to welcome our first child to our little family. My husband and I are both exercise fanatics and immensely enjoy our St. Paul gym community and love to escape to Lake Vermilion for a quiet weekend. We also volunteer and foster rescue pit bulls and Rottweilers through A Rotta Love Plus and continue to enjoy training our two rescue pit bulls in agility and therapy work. I also competitively show American Saddlebred horses on our national breed specific circuit.
