She was also elected to the National League of Cities’ Board of Directors and was appointed to serve on the National Institute of Environmental Health Services Advisory Council, and many other local, state and national committees.

She was also featured at the Levine Museum of the New South as one of the “Remarkable Women Who Made History” in Charlotte. Her papers are part of UNCC’s special collections archives. Through her life experiences she has gained a deeper level of understanding that assists her in guiding her clients through challenging matters with compassion and care.
“I’m getting to do what I actually chose to do in life: I wanted to make a difference and continually serve in a way that uses my passions and goals to help others. It is a tremendous blessing to be able to do that in one’s life. The collaborative law process has allowed me to continue my focus on helping others. This process provides a method by which I can work with my clients to resolve the extremely difficult issues that arise from a family separation in a more dignified, cooperative way.”
