I’ve had a passion for debate and persuasion from a young age. My legal career has taught me discipline, which in turn has harnessed my passion into an effective tool for communication, without which no lawyer would be successful.
In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my husband, Taylor, and pug, Franklyn. I also love a good day at the gym or relaxing with a book.
