rofessional Summary

I have been a licensed attorney in the state of Pennsylvania since 2001.  I began working for ECRM in 2013 as its General Counsel.  In addition to the General Counsel responsibilities, I am also the Director of the Human Resource Services Department. As Director, I manage the HR services that are provided by the other HR professionals of the department.  I also regularly provide HR-related services to clients.  These services include providing compliance advice relating to discrimination, wage and hour issues and leaves of absence under FMLA and the ADA, management trainings related to these topics and the review and drafting of employment-related agreements.   Before working for ECRM, I worked as an Associate General Counsel for the Allegheny County Housing Authority where my role included drafting commercial and residential contracts and advising senior management on regulatory compliance issues.  Prior to that, I worked for a small private law firm as an associate attorney where I practiced civil and criminal litigation.

About Me

I enjoy spending a majority of my personal time with my family.  I am married to Robert Mielnicki, a Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney.  At one time, my husband and I practiced law together in the same law firm.  We have one son, Ryan.  Everyone in our family is an avid baseball fan.  I spend a lot of my free time at the field, both during and outside of the regular season, since my husband also coaches Ryan’s little league teams.  I am originally from Erie, PA where I enjoy returning to visit.

Where was your most memorable vacation?

Two Disney World vacations with my family, both of which were during the week of Thanksgiving.  Both vacations were equally as memorable.  This is one of the best times of the year to visit Disney World since the parks are decorated for Christmas and the weather is still warm, but not overwhelmingly hot.
