I was raised by a single mother who was a professional horse trainer. My experience barrel racing and training horses taught me that the key to success is preparation and determination. I knew that I wanted to be an attorney at a very young age, I even attempted to apply to law school at the age of twelve.
I attended high school in “the cowboy capital of Texas,” Bandera, Texas. I received a Presidential Scholarship for academic excellence upon graduation. I then attended St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas, where I majored in English.
After receiving a score in the 98th percentile on the LSAT exam, I again received a Presidential Scholarship to law school. I traveled to Ft. Worth to attend law school at Texas Wesleyan University. I participated in trial advocacy, the student division of the State Bar Association, the legal fraternity Delta Theta Phi and continued barrel racing and competing competitively throughout my three years of law school. I began working in the Cooke County District Attorney’s Office during my second year of law school. As a third year law student, I obtained certification in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation.
I worked in private practice for a few distinguished law firms in Denton and Collin counties for several years where I defined my courtroom skills. In 2014, I opened my own practice, hoping to serve the local community with the same preparation and determination that I apply to barrel racing.
I married the love of my life, Steven, in 2008. I spend my time with my husband and son, Kreek, who both share my love of animals. I am active in several professional and personal organizations in the community. I strive to maintain honesty, compassion, strength and excellence in all endeavors.
I represent clients in Denton County, Collin County, Dallas County and Cooke County.
