Ms. Consolo was born and raised in Norristown, Pennsylvania nearby such local landmarks as Elmwood Park, Roosevelt School and Eisenhower School. Ms. Consolo graduated from Norristown Area High School in 1987. Following graduation, she attended her first year of College at Lebanon Valley College. Ms. Consolo completed her college education at Temple University, Ambler Campus, and received her Bachelors of Arts Degree in Political Science, with a minor in German from Temple University in 1990.

Following College, Ms. Consolo began working with Central Montgomery Mental Health/Mental Retardation in the FLECS program as a play therapist. She ran this group therapy with children whose ages ranged from 5 to 13 years. Ms. Consolo’s involvement in this program gave her a basis for her insight into family dynamics and child issues. This relates to her current field of Family Law and has assisted her in understanding those issues, allowing her to better deal with the issues in her ongoing Family Law cases.

Ms. Consolo attended Villanova Law School, graduating with her Juris Doctorate in 1994. She was admitted as a member of the Pennsylvania Bar in December of 1994. During law school, Ms. Consolo began working for the law firm of Solomon, Berschler, Warren & Schatz (now known as Solomon, Berschler, Schatz & Monaghan). She stayed with that firm upon her completion of law school until April of 2005.

While with the law firm, Ms. Consolo developed her area of practice in Family Law. Ms. Consolo operated as a sole practitioner in the Norristown Area, from April of 2005 until April of 2008, at which time, she joined with Keith A. Harbison, Esquire forming their new firm, Consolo & Harbison. Although she practiced in the surrounding counties of Bucks, Delaware, Chester, and Philadelphia; Ms. Consolo has now limited her practice to the Montgomery County area.

In addition to her family practice, Ms. Consolo also works for the court through appointments dealing with parents who are subject to Children and Youth and Dependency proceedings in an attempt to reunite the families involved. Ms. Consolo recently joined the Board of the Montgomery Conflict Mediation Center in 2012.

Recently she has been seen on television and in numerous newspapers as the result of her involvement in the return of a child to her father following a 3 and a half year absence as the result of kidnapping by her mother.
