I was raised by my maternal grandparents in Catawba, North Carolina. My small-town upbringing instilled within me the values of hard work, kindness and compassion, as well a strong sense of community service and desire to help others. I am a proud “Double Deacon” and hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology (cum laude) from Wake Forest University and a Juris Doctorate from the Wake Forest University School of Law.
Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked for the North Carolina Department of Corrections as an Adult Probation and Parole Officer and as a Child Protective Services and Foster Care Social Worker. After becoming a licensed attorney, I briefly practiced consumer law until my passion to help children and families led to my service as a Guardian ad Litem staff attorney with the Children’s Law Center of Central North Carolina, where I was an advocate for children in domestic violence and high conflict custody cases. I had the opportunity to transition into private practice in 2018 and opened my own law office in 2019. Currently, in addition to my work representing clients in family law matters, I am a Certified Parenting Coordinator providing help to families in high conflict custody matters. I am a member of the 31st Judicial District Bar, Winston-Salem Bar Association and North Carolina Bar Association Family Law Section.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons, reading, cooking, listening to all genres of music and cheering for my favorite football teams—Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Carolina Panthers and Detroit Lions.
As an attorney, I bring my years of experience working with families to your case. My ultimate goal is to provide professional representation with an emphasis on preparation and attention to detail.
