Biographical

I was a partner at Teague, Campbell, Dennis & Gorham, LLP until June 2013. My practice areas included workers’ compensation, professional liability, medical malpractice, and real estate litigation. Through my litigation practice, I became interested in alternative dispute resolution. I love the collaborative nature of mediation and found that the process offered my clients more favorable solutions to their disputes.

During college, I studied Spanish at the University of Salamanca and was fluent in Spanish at that time. Currently, I am proficient in Spanish. However, I am committed to practicing and continuing to work to hone my Spanish skills in order to be able to communicate more effectively in Spanish. Right now, I am conversational and find that it allows me to establish a rapport more quickly during mediation conferences with folks who do not speak English.
