Growing up in Fayetteville, NC, I have always had an interest in law. I thoroughly enjoy learning about the law and using that knowledge to help others. I began pursuing that interest in high school by interning at a criminal law firm in my hometown.
I graduated from Livingstone College with a bachelor’s degree in political science. After graduation, I took some time off and quickly realized that law was still my passion.
With this realization, I began my law school journey at Campbell University School of Law in 2017. I primarily chose Campbell because of its commitment to preparing their students for courtroom advocacy. Throughout law school I focused on civil litigation, family law, and poverty law. While in law school, I was a member of the Campbell Moot Court Team, the Women in Law organization, and the Black Law Student Association. I served as an Editor for the Campbell Law review and as Chief Justice of the Campbell Honor Court. I had the opportunity to intern at Legal Aid of North Carolina the summer after my second year of law school. This was the first time I had the opportunity to work with victims of domestic violence, and my interest in family law began. My third year, I worked directly with clients in the Blanchard Community Law Clinic. The highlight of my legal career was being published in the 2021 Social Justice Issue of the Campbell Law Review.
After law school, I moved back to my hometown and began working at Legal Aid of North Carolina- Pembroke. During my time there, I represented clients facing eviction and victims of domestic violence. Working at Legal Aid allowed me to gain invaluable courtroom experience. I thoroughly enjoyed making the legal process easier for my clients and being able to make a difference in their daily lives.
During my free time, I enjoy working out and spending time with my family. I’m also an avid reader and love trying new restaurants!
I have a lot of experience helping people navigate difficult periods in their lives. Those experiences have taught me to be transparent and realistic with my clients. My goal is to apprise my clients of their legal options and assist them with deciding which strategy is best for them. I will always have my client’s goals in the forefront of my mind and effectively communicate with my clients about how I plan to directly achieve those goals.
