Making Peace Out of Discord is Recognized by My Alma Mater, Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School

Making Peace Out of DiscordOn November 7th, Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School inducted me into their Hall of Honor along with six other women. I am both greatly humbled to be in the company of such accomplished women and grateful for the recognition of the work that I do in the field of Collaborative Practice.

The path I have taken – from a Catholic high school graduate to divorce lawyer – may seem odd to many, but my work as a lawyer, peacemaker, and mediator has its roots in the education I received at Mother McAuley. During my acceptance speech, I explained how my own family history was impacted by divorce and how I hope my work helps others avoid a similar history.

Helping people in a compassionate manner during one of the most difficult times in their lives ripples through to their relationships with family and friends. Every day when I walk into my office, I am truly glad I found a calling that allows me to make a difference in so many lives.
