I was a family law attorney for Nebraska Legal Services for 27 years representing approximately 1,000 people in domestic relations matters. I was one of the founders of the Panhandle Mediation Center in 1992 and I was one of their first mediators. I also was a founder of DOVES, the local domestic violence services agency in the Nebraska Panhandle. I have experience mediating cases for the U.S. District Court, District of Nebraska. In 2005 I became the Executive Director of Mediation West, an ODR approved mediation center serving Western Nebraska and reaching out to eastern Wyoming. Since then, I have been employed full time as both an administrator and mediator. I have extensive training and experience in mediation for almost 20 years.
