I have gained a wide variety of experiences in the areas of law and government regulation. My experiences include work as an Assistant District Attorney on a busy Criminal and Child in Need of Care (CINC) docket. I have been one of only a few members of a Written Discovery Response Team, in a very large corporate law firm, focused on tobacco litigation.
Recently, I have worked performing long-term care regulation, implementing the federal Life Safety Code, using specific State Operations Manuals (SOM), conducting complex legal research, and coordinating Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE). I am meticulously organized, and detailed, with a proven track record of success conducting legal research, analysis, government regulation, mediation, trial preparation, and document drafting. I have the proven ability to logically and effectively find and analyze statutes, ordinances, case law, and factual data.
My ability to be concise, complete, logical, objective and persuasive in both written and oral communications has been proven throughout my work history. I am resourceful, with a talent for anticipating and evaluating issues, for completing projects producing professional results, and for adhering to rigid deadlines.
