New York Law School, J.D.; Tufts University, B.A.
I am currently the Senior Director and Employment Counsel for Kindred at Home which has over 50,000 employees in 600 offices located in 40 states. I was the sole Employment Counsel for Gentiva Health Services for over 20 years, prior to its acquisition by Kindred in 2015. I am a former Trial Attorney for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and an expert in employment matters. I have tried bench and jury trials, and I have represented plaintiffs and defendants. My experience as in-house of publicly-traded companies and as a Trial Attorney with the EEOC has exposed me to thousands employment matters. For over 30 years I have focused almost exclusively on employment discrimination matters. I have worked on complex legal issues (e.g. NY State Police age discrimination case - EEOC; nationwide class action lawsuits - Gentiva/Kindred). I have settled hundreds of cases involving the ADA, FMLA, leaves of absences, and Title VII.
