She was awarded Staff Editor of the Year by the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law, and upon graduation, was awarded certificates for her pro bono service and concentration in dispute resolution. Her studies and experiences enable her to provide clients a well-rounded approach to resolving family law matters like divorce, child custody, child support, and alimony.
