My path to becoming an attorney began in 2000 as a legal intern. Since then a passion for justice and the law was sparked that has continued to grow and lead me into a career I love. Working my way up from legal intern to an attorney gives me an advantage in my practice that most attorneys do not have. I possess the practical, technical and procedural skills required to effectively practice law that most attorneys do not have. Not only does this experience give me a practical edge on other attorneys, but working as a paralegal gives me personable skills in client relationships because I have felt the client's frustration when they are told a paralegal cannot answer their legal question and their attorney is not available. Therefore, I strive to always take a call from a client and be of service to them when they are in need.
My passion is to solve legal issues while building a relationship of trust with my clients. Trust is critical so that my clients know I am diligently working to resolve their issue and striving to reach the best possible outcome for them. My greatest passion in life when I am not working, is spending by far the joy I get from watching my daughter grow and taking on new adventures
When I am not working, I am spending time with my daughter enjoying each stage of her life and tackling whatever new adventure or idea she comes up!
