I am originally from Gurdon, Arkansas. The first person in my family to attend a four-year college, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Russian and Political Science from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. As an undergraduate, I spent a semester abroad in Almaty, Kazakhstan, studying the Russian language and culture. I earned my Master of Arts degree in Slavic Languages and Literatures from the University of Kansas in 1998. After taking a year-long hiatus, I enrolled in law school at the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and obtained my law degree in 2002.
While in law school, I served as the Research Editor of the Arkansas Law Review. I was also an active member of the moot court program and was recognized for writing and oral advocacy achievement in this program. I served on the Board of Advocates as the Ben J. Altheimer Moot Court Competition Chair. In 2002, I was awarded the 2002 Outstanding Service to the Law School Award and received the 2002 Appellate Advocacy Prize.
While in law school, I received the Vincent W. Foster, Jr., Scholarship two years in a row. During my first interview with the scholarship selection committee, I met the Honorable William R. Wilson, Jr., of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, who served on the committee. Through this encounter, I was given the opportunity to serve Judge Wilson as one of his law clerks from 2002 to 2004. Following my clerkship, I have worked in the areas of insurance defense, including subrogation, workers' compensation defense, complex commercial and antitrust litigation, estate planning and probate law, and the development of business entities in Arkansas. I have submitted appeals to the Full Commission of the Arkansas Workers' Compensation Commission, the Arkansas Court of Appeal, the Arkansas Supreme Court, and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.
My goal at all times is to serve the Brad Hendricks Law Firm and its clients in any requested capacity with the ultimate goal of helping to obtain a favorable result for each client. My primary practice areas include bankruptcy, family, estate planning, and personal injury law. I am the Managing Bankruptcy Attorney.
I currently live in Little Rock, Arkansas, with my husband Stephen and our adorable daughter Catherine, and several fur friends.
