I joined The Mace Firm in July of 2008. At that time, I worked as a paralegal while I attended college at Coastal Carolina University. I assisted with personal injury, criminal and appellate cases. In May of 2010, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Pre-law. Throughout college, I was consistently a member of the President's List and Dean's List and received an award for having the highest grade point average in my department.
After graduating from Coastal Carolina Unversity, I applied and was accepted into the Charleston School of Law. While in law school, I continued to work part-time with The Mace Firm as a law clerk. I assisted in drafting appellate briefs to the United States Supreme Court, Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and South Carolina Court of Appeals. The writing skills I gained at The Mace Firm greatly assisted me in getting inducted into the Charleston Law Review. I was actually appointed as an Articles Editor my third year. It also helped me earn an externship with the Honorable Patrick Michael Duffy of the United States District Court of South Carolina. I am very grateful for the knowledge I gained with Judge Duffy.
After graduating from the Charleston School of Law in May of 2013, I took the South Carolina Bar in July of 2013 and was admitted to practice in November of 2013. I am now an Associate with The Mace Firm. I primarily handle appellate cases and personal injury matters.
