Recipient of the Dolphin Award from the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin
The CFLCW Dolphin Award grew out of an effort of a group of collaborative professionals in California as they sought to develop a symbol for their work. They selected a dolphin that was the centerpiece of a unique wall hanging that contained the challenge of Breath Deep, Fly High, Seek Peace. CFLCW adopted that symbol as the centerpiece of its first Dolphin Award given in 2005 to those members who through extraordinary and unselfish service to the council exemplify the best effort in meeting that challenge.
