About Me

A graduate of Brandon University as well as Old Dominion University, I earned my Juris Doctorate Degree from Florida Coastal School of Law. After law school, I worked in the Office of the Public Defender in Jacksonville, Florida where I defended thousands of clients against charges ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies.  I left that office in 2010 and have been working in my own firm since 2011 representing clients in criminal cases as well as a variety of family law issues.  


Outside of work, I am the mother of two boys and the wife of a retired miitary man.  We are "crazy marathoners" and, though I'm not speedy, I tend to sign up for one or more marathons each year.
