Responsibilities: My duties consist of a little bit of everything: I make sure the cases keep moving, whether it is ordering documents, filing paperwork in court, or answering questions for the clients.

How did you get into adoption law?

I worked 10 years in the Criminal Division at the County Attorney’s Office and wanted a good change. The job came open in the Adoptions for the County Attorney’s Office and I applied and fell in love with working with the families during their adoption.

What is your favorite part about your job?

My favorite part of my job is working with the families and seeing their happiness when they finally finalize their adoption.

What is one thing you’d most want people to know about MyersStrickland?

That MyersStrickland are the best at what they do, they have lots of experience in the adoption field, and I love working for them.

Anything else people should know about you?

I speak Spanish. I am a native Tucsonan and my family has been in Arizona since the late 1800’s, before Arizona became a state. I am married and have three children ages 27, 18 and 14. I also have two grandchildren ages 8 and 6. I volunteer at my children’s and grandchildren’s school. For fun I travel with my 14-year-old daughter to many of her dance competitions.
