About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Law
Occupation former supervising deputy district attorney
Location Yucca Valley, Mohave Desert, California, United States
Introduction I was born in Cleveland. I Yahoo map my old house on Hillsboro Road. Grandfather's ghost would be delighted that the property now adjoins Endora Park. He was a gardener for the city. Growing up as the only protestant kid in a Catholic neighborhood in Cleveland prepared me for almost anything. Professionally, I loved being a trial lawyer, I loved prosecuting major crimes, and I loved relating to juries. I cried for the victims and I still do. On the day I retired I knew what I wanted to do and I am doing it!

When they were on other people's wedding invitations.
