I was born and raised in a small town in southeast Ohio.
My dad was a high school teacher with an ardent passion for teaching and an uncanny sense of optimism.
His optimism taught me that if I just kept learning and working hard, there would be a payoff in the end. I turned out to be more of a realist, but I still believe that knowledge is power.
No one has ever called me because something good happened in their life. I take that responsibility very seriously.
It is my privilege to walk individuals and families through an unexpected challenge to help them achieve a just result. In working with my clients, I aim to be as transparent as possible about their case so that they can be empowered by knowledge.
My professional background as a prosecutor gives me a unique understanding of the criminal justice system. In addition to a law degree, I have a Master’s of Public Administration which allows me to bridge the gap between families and academic institutions.
I love coffee and weightlifting. I live in Tuscaloosa with my husband Will and our many animals. My dad is still my biggest cheerleader.
