I grew up right outside of Raleigh, North Carolina in the small town of Knightdale. I moved to the Catawba County area of North Carolina in my 30’s and most recently have moved to the Charlotte area, where I have lived since 2018. I attended Gaston Community College, with a concentration in Business Administration. I also attended Western Piedmont Community College, with a concentration In Paralegal Studies.
I worked for 7 years for family law/criminal law firms in the Catawba County area. I found a passion for criminal law and began working for a criminal law attorney in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2008. My position with the firm was as a trial paralegal in first degree murder/death penalty cases and federal criminal matters. I also managed both the law firm as well as the Property Management Company. I have now chosen to go back to my roots, returning to an established family law firm.
I feel the experience I have gained both professionally and personally having been through a divorce myself, allows me to be empathetic to the journey that our clients can experience.
In my free time I enjoy running, the theater, Appalachian State football and Panther’s games as often as I can make it. I also enjoy time with my family and friends. My youngest child lives in the Charlotte area, and I spend as much time as I can with them.
