"I went to law school because I wanted to help children through life’s sometimes difficult hurdles.
I had a background working and interning at various child advocacy nonprofits and felt that in order to truly help children and families, it had to begin at the individual level.
It is fulfilling for me to see my work first-hand, and to help families transition though the divorce process.
I am very close to my family, who all live in the DFW area. I have three siblings that I am lucky enough to call my closest friends. I also have a niece, Brynn, and nephew, Andrew, whom I enjoy spoiling and spending time with any chance I can get.
I am a huge animal lover and have both a dog and cat. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and volunteering for kidney cancer research and causes with the Kidney Cancer Coalition."
