In 2007 my career path took an unexpected turn from banking to law. Who would have thought I would end up in my husband’s line of business… divorces! Family law was not something I ever dreamed of. As a child of a very difficult divorce, my view of family law certainly didn’t include healing or peace. But working at Family Peacemaker has opened my eyes to what a transformative process divorce can (and should) be.
We often joke that the way we know we have been successful is when a couple leaves saying, “We didn’t even need their help; we came to agreements all on our own”. That’s when we know the couple has the will and tools needed to continue to make family decisions which bring blessings for generations to come. Our mediation team strives to help families heal and thrive… and I can tell you from experience, there isn’t a child of divorce around that wouldn’t benefit from (or desire) that!
If life has brought you to the place of divorce, this is the only way to go! It’s a non-court, non-adversarial, family-focused process. It’s divorce with the post-divorce family in mind.
When I started in 2007, I put my business and marketing skills to use for the business. In 2009 I received my paralegal certificate from UCI. Although my role in Family Peacemaker continues to shift, my commitment to ‘A More Peaceful Divorce” doesn’t. I love working with my husband and best friend. I love being part of this emerging practice of family law and I love how my role in this process gives me the flexibility I need to concentrate on the most important things in life. Although these days you’ll probably only hear from me regarding billing, I still LOVE to hear about your experience…email me.
We’re glad you found us and hope we can help you during this difficult chapter of your life.
