ADR Experience

I have been mediating since 2002 when I attended U MASS at Boston graduate program in conflict resolution. I broadened my skills and tools set by earning my Master’s in Mediation and Conflict Studies at Champlain College in 2014. My experience has been varied including over one hundred small claims court in MA and NH as well as private cases involving elder issues in families, business, communities struggling with consolidating school districts, families managing shared inherited assets, and employee relations issues in both for-profit and non-profits. I am a certified family mediator.
