About me

I am an attorney with the firm of Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant, & Knight, P.C. After growing up in Selma, Alabama, I attended the University of Alabama where I received a B.S. in Political Science, graduating magna cum laude in 2009. 


I have recently received my J.D. from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 2012.

Prior to joining the firm of Jaffe & Drennan, P.C., I interned for the Honorable Robert “Bob” Armstrong, District Judge for the 4th Circuit of Alabama. Additionally, I worked as a law clerk for Jaffe & Drennan P.C. prior to becoming an attorney.
