A licensed Registered Nurse and a legal nurse consultant for over 31 years, Ann supports the Firm’s attorneys and clients in analyzing the medical evidence in litigated matters involving allegations of personal injuries and medical malpractice.

In addition to digesting, summarizing, and interpreting medical records, Ann locates and reviews the pertinent medical literature; interfaces with health care providers, clients, and opposing counsel; and supports deposition and trial preparation, including the cross examination of opposing experts.

Before sharing her talents with the legal profession, Ann’s clinical experience includes emergency nursing with certifications in both emergency nursing and advanced cardiac life support. Ann also worked as the Director of Nursing for a federally funded not-for-profit organization operating two urban community health centers in Rochester, New York. Her responsibilities included quality assurance, risk management, grant writing, administering the employee health program and HIV prevention/treatment program, and involvement in several community-wide health initiatives. Outside of work, Ann volunteered as an emergency medical technician and ambulance crew chief.

In her free time, Ann enjoys gardening and family, is active in her church, and she and her husband facilitate a support group for dementia caregivers.
