My Dad was the 5th of 10 boys and one girl. His father Pete had a farm and served as Postmaster General of Chesterfield. My Dad and 5 brothers served in WWII. Al was a flight engineer on B 29s. My mother was the youngest of three girls. They met at a Langhorne dance and married in 1949.

I am the middle of three, an older sister who is a psychologist and younger brother, an engineer. I attended Catholic schools from first grade through college, St. Peter’s, St. Joseph’s High School and the University of Dayton, from which I graduated with a degree in Communication Arts.

I lived in Chicago for a year before graduating from law school in Cleveland after which I returned to New Jersey to work as a law clerk and for Ocean County Legal Aid.

When I married in 1980, I moved to PA and was a Bucks County Public Defender for 3 years, then Bucks County Solicitor for Domestic Relations before I entered private practice. I opened my own shop in 1997. My practice concentrates on family law.

My husband was the Executive Director of the National Demolition Association and published their magazine, Demolition for 25 years. We have two children. Doug, a medical writer, now finishing his MBA at St. Joseph’s and Meri who followed her father into the Association Management field.

We have lived in Doylestown since 1982 and love the area. I keep busy with reading, movies, gym classes and love to snow ski.
