I grew up in Indialantic, Florida, attending Gemini and Indialantic Elementary, Hoover Junior High and Melbourne High School - Go Bulldogs! I played a number of sports growing up, including soccer, softball, volleyball and swimming. I then went to Stetson University on a soccer scholarship.
During my time at Stetson, I studied abroad in Nottingham, England and traveled to London, Paris and Munich with school programs. During that time I met my future husband, Martin, who was playing soccer for the Florida Institute of Technology.
After graduating from Stetson with my Bachelor's degree (minor in German), I went on to Florida State University for law school. Three years later, I passed the bar exam and began a master's degree at Florida State University. I worked at the Florida House of Representatives in the Fiscal Responsibility Committee during that time and completed the degree while at the Florida State University London campus.
Thereafter, I remained in London with my husband and began working with Gilbert, Turner & Coomber in the area of criminal defense. I qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales in 2004 and practiced in the areas of criminal defense, prison law and immigration.
In 2010, we decided as a family to move back to Florida where I started working as an Assistant State Attorney in Florida's 18th Judicial Circuit. I was fortunate enough to be part of a wonderful organization at the State Attorney's Office and gained invaluable trial and advocacy experience. I then had the good fortune to be hired by John and Lynda Moser at Moser & Moser, P.A. and practised with that firm for over a year in the areas of family law, criminal defense and immigration.
We have a wonderful legal team at Coastal Legal Team, L.L.C. and would love to help you with your legal needs. We take a team effort in our representation and are dedicated to getting the best result possible for our clients.
