I’m always up for an adventure, including sky diving and whitewater rafting. After my daughters were born, I scaled back slightly. Our family mini-van now includes a sticker that says, “I used to be cool.”

Experience

I am a leader in the firm’s services practice, specializing in serving technology clients. With over 18 years of experience, I consult with several of the firm’s larger and more complex clients engaged in the technology industry. Many of my clients are internationally active, both within and outside of the United States, with operations across the globe. I also work extensively with private equity funds and their portfolio companies, assisting them with acquisitions, entity structure, integration, and buy- and sell-side due diligence to help them grow and become best in class.

Clients appreciate that I’m responsive, proactive, and collaborative. Around the office, colleagues know me for being a technical resource to them, as well as a good sounding board for their ideas and challenges. I’ve been in this field for more than 18 years, and I love that it affords me the privilege of working with a smart, energetic, and eager-to-learn workforce.

One aspect of my job I particularly enjoy is teaching staff. I’ve received the Macomb office’s Wentrack Staff Mentorship Award (which honors those who personify the characteristics of outstanding staff development) and the firm’s Morrison Award (recognizing the selfless spirit that characterizes the firm’s culture). It’s both humbling and gratifying to be acknowledged for my commitment to supporting others. As a professional and a parent to three children, I want others to know this firm supports a work/life balance. It’s one of the reasons I’m the Women in Leadership office champion for Macomb.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and three children, especially at our family cabin. I also love to play volleyball and basketball, and I’m an avid dog lover.
