Biographical

I began my career as a labor arbitrator in 1993. Since 2002, I have been a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators. Prior to becoming a full-time labor arbitrator in 2015, I worked as a Senior Administrative Hearing Officer for the State of Ohio,  where I adjudicated several thousand disputes between claimants and employers in contested unemployment compensation cases. I also determined whether bargaining unit employees who were out of work due to a labor dispute were entitled to unemployment benefits under Ohio law. As a mediator for the Ohio Court of Appeals, I mediated workers’ compensation permanent total disability appeals, including cases involving self-insured employers.
