I am a product of divorced parents and a split family household. My parents were divorced when I was 12 years old, with both my mother and father later remarrying. Both of my stepparents had children of their own from prior marriages, who became part of my family. As a result, I have experienced firsthand the emotional and financial challenges of divorce and family law issues and seek to help my client navigate the often confusing legal complexities family law litigation can pose.
I am an Associate Attorney and Assistant Team Leader of the St. Louis County Office at Stange Law Firm, LLC.
I received a bachelor of arts, magna cum laude, with honors, from Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs double majoring in International Relations and Economics. While at Syracuse, I was named as the College of Arts and Sciences College Marshal and Convocation Speaker. I received my Juris Doctorate from Saint Louis University School of Law where I finished in the top 25 percent of my class and was awarded the School of Law’s Academic Excellence Award (highest grade obtained in the class) in the field of Securities Regulation. While in law school I also participated in Trial Advocacy and advanced Moot Court.
Immediately following law school I began practicing in the area of domestic litigation, and I have limited my practice to this pursuit. After beginning my practice in a small botique family law firm specializing in high asset dissolutions, I joined the Stange Law Firm’s Brentwood office where I represent clients in all family law matters, including divorce, paternity, modifications of child support and child custody, guardianship cases, and post-judgment enforcement and collections matters, including the preparation and implementation of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (“QDROs”).
