Re:Solutions Mediation also provides post-divorce family, child, and financial issues mediation services.


I’m a former educator with over 20 years of experience working with kids, families and teens in a variety of teaching, advising and administrative positions. Through my own extraordinary personal experiences with divorce and the legal system, I decided to make a mid-life career change to pursue my mission to make Divorce Mediation a reality in the Sandusky, Ohio area. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars in court and countless years of my life wading through a broken legal system and believing that there has to be a better way to get a divorce. My passion is to help couples and families with children avoid the devastating emotional and financial costs that a traditional, lawyer-driven, litigated divorce can bring. I’m committed to helping couples divorce in a dignified, respectful, economical and efficient way.
