About me



I am a mother of 2 lovely girls and have been married to a wonderful husband for 6 years.  Law is my second career.  Before becoming a lawyer I was a school teacher for children with special needs and had worked with children for special needs for the last 15 years.  I have a B.S. in Human Services, Master's in Special Education, and Juris Doctorate.  I have devoted a large portion of my life to teaching and helping children and their families.  I choose law to be able to assist families in other ways such as custody, divorce, education issues, estate planning, disability issues as well as several other areas of law.  I have enjoyed my career change, because I have had the opportunity to advocate and assist many families in trouble times.  I look forward to helping you in a situation.  I firmly believe because I have a better understanding I can give better service.  Please feel free to contact me.  My office is located on South Blvd. in Charlotte, NC, but I do travel.
