Meet Our Section Chair
Why should a CMBA member join your Section/Committee?
We have strong programming and good networking. A bonus is that the section members have deep knowledge of the area of law and routinely discuss difficult and trending topics at our section meetings.
How has the Section/Committee impacted your practice?
I have learned a lot about my specialty, I have made good connections in the industry, and it helped prepare me for my Ohio insurance coverage specialization exam.
What do you like best about practicing law in Cleveland?
The city is big enough to have widely varying and sophisticated experiences, but small enough to develop meaningful relationships with a good number of my legal colleagues around town.
Why are you a CMBA member?
While my daily work connects me to my firm, our clients, and business contacts, I am a CMBA member because it connects me more broadly to my profession, and it gives me valuable opportunities for professional education and growth.
Tell us more about you.
While I love all things University Circle, I have a special spot in my heart for the nearby Rockefeller Greenhouse. I also love to hike in the Metroparks with my kids. Something else I consider a hobby is that I like to sightsee whenever possible. A "fun fact" about me is that I am a pepperoni pizza enthusiast, on an endless quest for ideal pizza (which I have found at Marotta's in Cleveland Heights).
