About me

Prior to founding White and Champagne, I worked in-house for various insurance companies.  Now, as a  plaintiff's lawyer, I bring that knowledge to my cases and am able to predict the insurance company's every move. 

In my personal life, I am a wife and mother of a toddler.  I enjoy boating, reading, cooking,  and fitness.  I am the also the proud mother of a 5 year old Boxer.  I attend St. Thomas Aquinas parish and am actively involved in various civic causes.
