A typical day in my life includes…

a focus on helping divorcing spouses and parents avoid a harmful court battle. As a neutral mediator, I guide people through divorce mediation—a healthier, confidential, and more affordable divorce process that reduces stress and is better for children. In mediation, I help spouses reach agreements on dividing their assets and debts, support issues, and help parents develop a parenting plan so that they avoid a terrible custody fight in court. I am constantly motivated knowing how divorce mediation prevents divorce wars and protects children.

I was born…

to love my family, appreciate every moment of my life, and make a little peace in this world.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is watching the National weather reports on TV in January!

I’m listening to…

Adele, Amy Winehouse, Billy Joel, Dave Brubeck, Fun, Helen Jane Long, John Legend, John Meyer, Pharrell Williams, Sarah Bareilles, Sia

My family…

is my life.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my brother, Danny. We lost him after a ferocious battle with testicular cancer. What I would give to have just a little more time. He would cook for us.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my morning coffee.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a little different.

I’m inspired by…

talented people, Mister Rogers, Rocky movies, excellent music, people who communicate well, parents who put their children first.

The one person who motivates me is…

Karen Aurit.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

that all people would pause a moment, think, and process, before reacting. So much conflict in our lives and in the world could be avoided with some increased thoughtfulness about our interactions.

The perfect day would be…

on vacation, in a relaxing beach town, with my closest friends and family, and no itinerary.

My first job was…

as a host at Coco’s! That location has since closed.

My favorite escape…

is a good Netflix marathon.

My life…

is supported by my incredible family and true friends.

I’m currently working on…

creating awareness in Arizona about divorce mediation. People can choose a better divorce, instead of fighting it out in court. Mediation saves spouses an incredible amount of money, time, and stress. It keeps people in control of their own divorce terms. Most importantly, mediation protects children’s emotional well-being because parents avoid an ugly custody battle, and instead, come to mutual agreements about parenting issues. Divorce mediation allows people to become divorced without ever setting foot in a courtroom. You can be a hero to a friend or family member considering divorce by sharing the benefits of divorce mediation. Find out more by contacting The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation at 480-378-2686.

Always…

encourage your children have a positive relationship with their other parent during and after divorce.

Never…

attack, criticize, or speak negatively about your spouse or former spouse in the presence of your children, no matter how angry or frustrated you may feel.

Favorite Quote…

“All you can do, is all you can do.”  – my Mom

My Biggest Dream…

is helping to change Arizona’s court-battle-culture, to one where most people settle their divorce and child custody issues more peacefully, out of court, In mediation.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

inflexibility.
