I began my private mediation practice after serving as a mediator for the Oregon Employment Relations Board. As one of three mediators for the board, I assisted public employers and employee organizations throughout Oregon to resolve disputes and mediated over 100 cases. Those mediations included resolving collective bargaining disputes, grievances under collective bargaining agreements, unfair labor practice cases, and civil service appeals. I also conducted joint trainings and facilitation services for labor and management representatives for improved negotiations.
Before becoming a mediator, my legal practice focused on representing clients in individual and class action claims for Wage and Hour, Family Medical Leave Act, Title VII and other employment-related cases. I worked as a public affairs attorney at the Oregon State Bar in the law improvement and government relations program and as a labor representative for the Oregon Nurses Association handling contract negotiations, labor relations, and administration in private sector healthcare.
