“It’s a privilege to represent so many incredible healthcare organizations and professionals committed to helping people achieve better health by helping them to deploy cutting-edge technology that will enhance quality of care, grow their businesses, develop new or improved service lines that improve access to care, recruit and retain talented healthcare professionals, keep up with ever-changing regulations, and explore new and innovative ways to improve the health of their communities.”

“One of the things I love most about McAfee & Taft is the opportunity to have an intellectually challenging and fulfilling career while at the same time being deeply committed to family. Raising three little boys while serving as primary outside healthcare counsel for several organizations means being very intentional in how you structure your time and what you prioritize. I am fortunate to work with so many colleagues who share similar values and who support and encourage each other through different seasons of life.”
