I grew up in the Richmond area and stayed close to home to attend college at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. I then moved to North Carolina to attend law school at Elon University School of Law, where I earned my Juris Doctor. While in law school, I served as an editor on the Elon Law Review, and I also published a research article in Volume 14 of the Elon Law Review, analyzing the sexual harassment of women working in traditionally male-dominated jobs.
I wanted to be an attorney for as long as I can remember, but my interest in the area of family law was solidified during law school when I interned with the Elon Law Emergency Legal Services Program, which provides legal services to victims of domestic violence. During that internship, I learned first-hand how important the area of family law is in resolving intrafamilial conflicts and helping families build healthier, safer relationships. In addition, I worked as a law clerk at Whitbeck Bennett and The Law Office of Tara Brown during the summers of 2020 and 2021.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing fetch with my dog, Ruby, and binge-watching reality TV.
