About me

I graduated cum laude from the University of Florida in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management.  I later obtained my law degree from the University of Florida, Levin College of Law in December of 2007, and was admitted the practice law in Georgia in 2008.


 


During my time in law school, I participated as a Children's Fellow through the Center on Children and Families. I later developed my passion for family law by volunteering at a domestic violence clinic and a pro se divorce clinic, before working in private practice.  


 


I have exclusively practiced family law since obtaining my bar membership in the State of Georgia.  Before joining my current firm, Stern & Edlin, I practiced family law at the Law Offices of Pamela L. Tremayne, and at Callner, Portnoy & Strawser, P.C.


 


I am very passionate about practicing family law and I believe in providing support, understanding, advocacy and counseling to each client.
