Roxanne received her J.D. from Villanova University's Charles Widger School of Law. During her time there, she authored her 3L thesis on the intersection of Social Media and E-Discovery within the realm of Litigation. This exploration delved into how the standard for invading privacy evolves within specific legal domains and would shape Roxanne's subsequent interest in the technology space. Her role as a liaison between her firm and digital forensics companies was further cultivated in her work with extensive data sets, electronic discovery, and various aspects of litigation technology.

Prior to that, Roxanne spearheaded a satellite office in Bucks County for a prominent Philadelphia firm. While there, she worked on general civil litigation matters. She also helped streamline processes in the department, and brought in new technologies to help with efficiency and growth. Roxanne’s empathetic nature made her a client favorite, as she understands that in matters of personal justice, every case deserves special attention.
Roxanne was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia. She attended George Washington High School in Somerton Philadelphia, then received her B.A. from Temple University in Strategic and Organizational Communications before attending law school. Her concentrations in rhetorical studies and public relations helped educate her in persuasion and communication, in a way that would be critical to her future success as a litigator.
