Biography

In 1982, I received a B.A. in political science from Wheaton College, Wheaton Illinois, and then worked for an insurance company as a claims adjuster and actuarial assistant. I returned to the East Coast, my place of origin, in 1985 to attend law school at Rutgers University School of Law, Camden, New Jersey where I graduated with a J.D. in 1988. After passing the Pennsylvania Bar, I accepted a job with an estate planning attorney in Annapolis, Maryland where I have lived for the last 25 years. I am licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

In 1993, I started my own estate planning law practice in Annapolis, Maryland, and continued to practice part-time when I began graduate school at Catholic University of America. In 2006, I received my Ph.D. in political theory; minor American politics from Catholic University. My dissertation was on John Locke's theology and political thought.

I was fortunate to work for the Maryland General Assembly during the 1990s as a legislative intern and legislative analyst. From 2007 to 2012, I worked for the Comptroller of Maryland as a government lawyer in motor-fuel, alcohol, and tobacco tax. Since 2012, I have been teaching as an adjunct faculty in American Government at Loyola University, Anne Arundel Community College, Howard Community College, Marymount University, and Ashford University (online). 

I am so pleased to combine law and academics by teaching the Trusts and Estates Seminar course at the University of Maryland School of Law in Spring 2014.
