I am a Visiting Assistant Professor and the Assistant Dean of Career and Professional Development.
I teach Evidence, as well as Personal and Professional Responsibility, chair the Student Career and Professional Development Faculty Committee, and am responsible for the overall strategic development of career services and employer relations programs.
I supervise the collection, maintenance, and verification of law graduate employment data for the school. I also develop and supervise pro bono opportunities that match students with courts and law-related organizations with a focus on serving indigent and under-served members of the community.
Before joining WMU-Cooley, I was an attorney with Collins Einhorn Farrell PC, in Southfield, Michigan where I defended professionals in medical and legal malpractice cases. I was previously an attorney with Kitch Drutchas Wagner Valitutti & Sherbrook PC, in Detroit, practicing medical malpractice defense, and an attorney with Roberts Perryman & Bomkamp PC, in St. Louis, Missouri, practicing insurance defense.
I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan and the United States Supreme Court, and have previously been admitted to the bars of Illinois and Missouri, where I currently hold inactive status.
I serve as an Oakland County Bar Foundation Lifetime Fellow, am a member of the Thomas M. Cooley Society, sponsor an annual scholarship for the Walled Lake Consolidated Schools, and am a member of the Kalamazoo College Alumni Pre-Law Society.
