About Me

I am  a native Floridian and 3rd generation attorney with over 20 years of legal experience as a legal assistant and an attorney. I focus my practice in the areas of estate planning, probate, guardianship and elder law.


 


I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies. While attending the University of Central Florida, I was an active member of Alpha Xi Delta, a woman’s fraternity. I was also a member of Phi Alpha Delta, a law fraternity, and was the Treasurer and a founding member of the UCF Trial Team. 


 


I earned my Juris Doctor and an Estates and Trusts Practices Certificate from the University of Florida, Levin College of Law. While attending the University of Florida, Levin College of Law, I served as a Teaching Assistant for Legal Research & Writing, as well as, for Appellate Advocacy. I was a member of the Estates, Trusts and Elder Law Society and served as Vice President and President of the organization. I was also the Senior Student Assistant for the Center for Estate and Elder Law Planning. During my final year of law school I had the honor of working as a Judicial Intern for the Honorable Lawrence R. Kirkwood in the Probate Division of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court in Orlando, Florida.
