About Me

I have 10 years of nursing experience - including experience as a nurse educator - to bring to my practice as an attorney.


 


I received my law degree with honors from Stetson University College of Law with a Certificate of Concentration in Advocacy. I also received book awards (the highest grades for the semester) in: Constitutional Litigation, Appellate Practice, and Advanced Torts. Prior to law school, I received a general AA, an ADN, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Both associate level degrees were obtained at St. Petersburg College, and my BSN was obtained from the University of South Florida. Currently, I am working towards a Masters in Nursing with a focus on health policy.
