After Graduating Law School from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2002, I began her legal career in Odessa and Midland, Texas in private practice. My work there consisted of juvenile justice, adult criminal defense, family law, and civil litigation.
Assistant Criminal District Attorney (Amarillo, 2003-2009)
I later moved to Amarillo where she was appointed as an Assistant District Attorney in Randall County. There I handled juvenile cases and mental health commitments, as well as successfully trying misdemeanor offenses ranging from speeding tickets to assaults, thefts, DWI's/DUI's. I then spent several years handling all level felony offenses from burglaries, aggravated robberies, to sexual assaults, to murders and other homicide cases, and anything else in between.
Criminal Defense (Austin, 2009-2013)
I relocated to the Austin Area in 2009 where I served for several years in private practice. My focus was handling criminal defense cases for a local law firm. There I honed my defense skills by successfully litigating and trying countless criminal cases for my clients. I successfully litigated hundreds of DWI cases and got countless cases dismissed or pled to lesser charges.
Assistant Criminal District Attorney (Williamson County, 2013-2016)
In 2013, I again returned to the prosecution side when I was appointed to the Williamson County District Attorney's Office. There I tried several high profile felony cases, and was formally recognized several times for my work with victims of crime and law enforcement.
