Education & Training: BS University of Maryland– College of Business and Management 1980, Paralegal Studies Certificate– AACC 2002.
Background: 25 years of business ownership and experience in a variety of areas including Retail, Sales Training, Residential Contracting and Construction, and Marketing. Presently part owner of a Manufacturer’s Rep firm in the Information Technology field. Owner of Capital Mediation Services in Annapolis.
Mediation Experience: As the owner of Capital Mediation Services, I have conducted numerous Mediations with a heavy concentration in the area of Family Conflict Resolution including custody and visitation disputes and parenting plans, as well as business and employment disputes and civil actions.
Approach to Mediation: I believe that Mediation is the best alternative for conflict resolution because it is a non-adversarial, confidential approach to solving disputes that protects and preserves established relationships while empowering the parties involved. As a professional Mediator, I assist the parties themselves to identify issues and explore alternatives for resolution, allowing for the creation of a settlement agreement that works best for them. Mediation is a less costly and more timely alternative than litigation, and the process promotes better understanding and communication between the parties.
Areas of Concentration: Family Conflict Resolution, Custody Disputes and Parenting Plans, Business and Employment Disputes.
