BIOGRAPHY

I am a seasoned business attorney with over 22 years of experience providing clear, practical, and highly effective legal counsel to clients in the manufacturing, technology, and service sectors. I have worked both as outside and in-house legal counsel and, prior to becoming an attorney, I worked as a field sales executive for two of the nation’s largest pharmaceutical companies. My unique, multi-faceted perspective has allowed me to partner more effectively with my business clients and apply economic thinking to the development of contractual alternatives and the resolution of contract disputes.

 

Over the course of my 13-year tenure as in-house counsel, I served as the lead commercial attorney for senior level executives at a Fortune Global 500® corporation and a privately held industrial manufacturer of glass, automotive and building products. I led “plain English” training sessions on numerous legal topics, including general contracting, creating contract “optionality”, and understanding contractual rights and obligations.

 

My practice at MWH focuses on contract support, and includes analyzing, negotiating, and drafting long-term supply agreements, pricing agreements, distribution agreements, joint development agreements, ER&D agreements, asset purchase and sale agreements, letters of intent and memoranda of understanding, non-disclosure agreements, performance warranty provisions, general terms and conditions, and other commercial matters.

 

My commercial transactions and contract support experience includes the negotiation and drafting of:

      • Automotive (OEM, Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3) contracts related to production and non-production procurement.
      • Automotive OEM global terms and conditions of purchase and Automotive (Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3) global terms and condition of purchase and sale.
      • Automotive OEM strategic alliance and development agreements, including a Development Agreement among a Fortune Global 500® corporation and three other Automotive OEMs for the development and manufacture of certain powertrain components.

I earned my Juris Doctor degree from Santa Clara University School of Law, my Master of Arts degree in Telecommunication Business Management from Michigan State University, and my Bachelor of Arts degree in Telecommunication from Michigan State University.

I am currently licensed to practice in Michigan and Florida.
