As a Navy Brat, I was born in Hawaii, and lived in five other states before calling Florida home. Early on in life, I knew I wanted to be an attorney and zealously advocate on the behalf of others. As a result, I began working in law firms in Virginia, while simultaneously pursuing my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at Christopher Newport University. After graduation, I moved to Jacksonville to attend Florida Coastal School of Law. During law school, I continued to work in the personal injury field; all while being involved in the law school community. I demonstrated my ability to critically analyze difficult legal questions through my roles as a brief writer and oral advocate on the nationally ranked Moot Court Honor Board. Additionally, I was a Student Ambassador, and the Pro Bono Chairman for the Student Bar Association. Moreover, I was a legal writing teaching assistant, as well as a torts teaching assistant. I earned my Juris Doctor degree in 2013, and also received a Certification in Advanced Legal Research, Writing and Drafting. After becoming licensed to practice law in the State of Florida, I aggressively practiced personal injury in Jacksonville, Florida. In my spare time, I like spending time with my family and friends, cooking, gardening, exploring the outdoors, and participating in local community events. I especially enjoy rooting for the Jacksonville Jaguars. I am also an avid supporter of programs benefiting underprivileged youth.
I joined Rubenstein Law in 2015 and practiced in our Miami office for two years. I have since re-located back to Jacksonville to practice from our Jacksonville office.
