I graduated from Tulane Law School. I have been married to my law partner, Tim Waltman, for almost 40 years - yes we were high school sweethearts. I love to read and spend time outdoors. For my 50th birthday, I ran the Little Rock Marathon. I am a member of the Shreveport and Bossier Bar Associations. I serve as Treasurer of the Shreveport Bar Pro Bono Project. I am also a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Louisiana Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Louisiana Public Defenders Association.
