About Me

I am proudly a University of Florida alumnus where I received both my degrees.  In May of 1999, I received my Bachelor of Arts in History, with Honors, with a Minor in Secondary Education.  In May of 2002, I then received my Juris Doctorate, with Honors, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law.

During my law school years, I interned, and later was employed, as a Federal Law Clerk to the Honorable William Wagner for the Northern District of Florida in Gainesville.  I also served as a Certified Legal Intern at the Virgil Hawkins Civil Clinic at the University of Florida Levin College of Law where I assisted and advised indigent clients on their family law cases.  In recognition of my efforts and dedication to the clients of the Civil Clinic I received the prestigious Book Award for the Clinic.  During law school, I was President of the Spanish American Law Student Association (SALSA), a member of the Law College Council and a College of Law Ambassador.

After leaving my employment as a Federal Law Clerk in October of 2002, I was appointed as an Assistant State Attorney in Florida's Fifth Judicial Circuit in Ocala where I received invaluable experience in criminal law.  During my employment there, I prosecuted criminal cases in the Felony, Juvenile, and Misdemeanor Divisions.  I prosecuted crimes, such as Assaults, Batteries, DUIs, Domestic Violence Cases, Drug Offenses, Sex Offenses, Thefts and Traffic Offenses.

While an Assistant State Attorney, I taught legal aspects as it pertained to correctional officers and police cadets for the Central Florida Community College's Criminal Justice Institute.  I also teach Student Resource Officers the law for the Attorney General's Office's Florida Crime Prevention Institute.

In December of 2007, I decided to open my own law practice to serve the needs of the citizens of North Central Florida in matters of Criminal Defense, Family Law and General Civil Law matters.
