I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, in the Belmont-Hillsboro area. I am the youngest of six children. After graduating from Father Ryan High School in 2005, I attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and obtained my bachelor's degree. I then went to the other side of the state to the University of Memphis to earn my juris doctorate.
I met my husband during our first year of law school, and we were married the October following our graduation in 2012. He took the bar exam and began building a practice while I worked as a preschool administrator. After I received my license, I joined him full-time. Because both of us came from working-class families, we enjoy representing individuals and small businesses who are often underrepresented.
I love working for myself because it allows me freedom to assist clients in a number of different ways, rather than limiting my practice to one specific area. I also like being able to set my own schedule to best serve my clients--we can meet at times outside of regular business hours to accommodate their schedules, for example. I also enjoy that I have spare time for my personal interests and hobbies, like home improvement projects, cooking, reading, writing, and music. I think having time for such things is invaluable because they relieve stress and widen my knowledge base.
