Lea's Perspective

  • I am married to my husband, and we have a blended family (his, mine,
    ours). Our children range from 24 to 7 years of age.

  • I have parental experience of going through the Mankato area court system trying for custody of my stepson multiple times and working with GAL.

  • I have also gone through a divorce and know the stresses and concerns that come
    along with it, especially when there are children involved.


  • With my experience throughout my journey in life, I want always to make it a priority
    to make families less stressed through this process and know that situations can
    have a positive result in an unfortunate situation.
