TRAINING/EXPERIENCE/COMMENTS
A.B., Chemistry, Princeton University, 1985; J.D., University of Oregon, 1990. Worked for most of the past 17 years on complex environmental cases - from a variety of perspectives: from scientific to legal/policy; from industrial to Tribal. For nine years, represented an Indian Tribe on an intense water rights conflict. The collaborative resolution involved several irrigation districts, multiple Federal and State agencies, and several environmental groups, and resulted in the successful restoration of salmon to the Umatilla River. Inspired by that experience, undertook extensive private mediation training (over 175 CLE credits between 2000 and 2001) in a variety of practice areas.
Member: Oregon State Bar's ADR Section, Natural Resources Section and Indian Law Section (Executive Committee 1996-1999); and the Oregon Mediation Association.

I have learned, first-hand, that people can resolve even impossible-seeming conflicts - for themselves. While adjudication has its place, mediation offers another way.
