Not many people can say they love doing their job. However, I can. I truly enjoy helping Administrators/Executors navigate the perils associated with Estate issues. I take great pride in being involved in the last step of someone’s legacy. As an Estate Paralegal we are one of the last people who gets to take the decedent’s life footprint and make sure that their wishes are fulfilled.
Handling Estates, I can sympathize, having been in my client’s shoes. I understand the grieving process and the stress of handling Estates first hand. Being a Genealogist, my background comes in handy when having to deal with heirship cases within the court system for Intestate Estates.
I have an AAS Degree in Business Administration, an Accountant Technician Certification, and BS Degree in Professional Studies with a Major in Business, Economics, and Management; all from SUNY. I am also a Certified Paralegal through NYS, a Notary Public, and owner of a genealogy research company. I am a member of the Bar Association of Erie County, American Bar Association (ABA), WNY Paralegal Association (WNYPA), Empire State Alliance of Paralegal Associations (ESAPA), National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NALA), Alpha Beta Gama, National Society of Genealogists, and American Institution of Professional Bookkeepers.
I am a mother of 2 adult children, 2 fur babies, and have an amazing husband. My hobbies include genealogy research, gardening, remodeling, traveling, day-trips, and trying new restaurants. My all-time favorite thing to do is spend time with family and friends.
