I’m senior counsel in the firm’s Early Stage & Emerging Companies practice group. I work with private companies (middle-market and emerging businesses), investment funds, early-stage investors, lenders and individuals in corporate and finance transactions. Every day I help clients who need general corporate counseling, who are considering starting new businesses, who are buying or selling a business (family-owned, venture-backed or otherwise), who are looking to bring in a new partner or buy out an existing partner, or who need advice on financing a business via private investors, fund investors, venture-debt or traditional commercial debt.
I graduated from Trinity College (Hartford, CT) (B.A.) in 1994 and Vanderbilt University School of Law (J.D.) in 2000. Prior to practicing law, I worked as a human resources and payroll software consultant in Nashville. I am practical and a problem-solver by nature, and I enjoy helping our clients achieve their desired business goals.
I have three school-age children, so add chauffeur and professional spectator to my list of skills. I am an active volunteer at my children’s schools (Ursuline Academy, The Summit Country Day School and St. Mary School) and I interview high school seniors applying to Trinity College. I also am a very active board member of The American Red Cross Greater Cincinnati – Dayton Chapter (ask me about our Home Fire Campaign!) and The Cincinnati Country Club.
