She works for the Civilian Review Board in New York City, mediating disputes involving police officers and is the founder of Mediation Interface (1996). She is eclectic and multi-disciplinary in her approach to problem solving and is familiar with the transformative, facilitative and evaluative forms of mediation. In her dispute resolution course, she covers conflict prevention, management, containment and resolution as well as the underlying dynamic of the importance of dialogue, open communication and generating creative options in the conflict resolution process.
