I graduated magna cum laude from Allegheny College, Meadville, Pennsylvania in 1979 and received my Juris Doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 1996. The core of my practice has been primarily in the areas of common interest community law, foreclosures, and real property; focusing in Board governance, governing documents and cooperatives. I am a member of the Connecticut Bar Association, the New Haven County Bar Association and the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association. I joined Bender Anderson and Barba, P.C. in October 2016.
