About me

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio.  After graduating cum laude from Bowling Green State University (Go Falcons!) I moved to the beautiful sunshine state and have never looked back!  I attended Stetson University for law school where I graduated in the top 5% of my class, graded into the Honors Program, and was a member of law review.  Since then I've practiced construction and insurance law in the Tampa Bay area.  


I'm extremely involved in bar, construction, and community organizations (as you can see from my extensive list below).  After almost 4 years with the largest construction firm in Tampa I decided to live my American Dream and open up my own law firm.  


Outside of work, my husband Bill and I love to travel, try new restaurants, drink wine, and play with our adorable English Bulldog Bali (named after our favorite vacation destination).
