Summary

I hail from the Deep South and was born and raised in East Tennessee. Since elementary school, I had always wanted to become a lawyer. I obtained my Bachelor’s of Arts and Honors in Political Science and US History from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. After college, I decided to take a few years off and moved to San Francisco and volunteered at a non-profit organization. While in California, I took advantage of all the state had to offer by hiking, skiing and climbing. It was there that I helped raise almost $3,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation by climbing North America’s tallest mountain, Mt. McKinley, otherwise known as Denali. Although I didn’t reach the top, the experience left a lasting impression on me. Despite the fact that I enjoyed the California sunshine, I realized that I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming an attorney. I received my Juris Doctor from Vermont Law School in 2006. During law school, I focused on establishing a name and reputation for myself in New Jersey, as I knew that I would be moving there upon graduation. I attended New York Law School for a semester as a Visiting Student and also took advantage of a judicial externship during my last semester. I externed in New Jersey for the Presiding Judge of the Civil Division for the Hudson County Superior Court. After graduation from law school, I permanently moved to New Jersey and served as a Judicial Law Clerk to a Superior Court Judge in the Family Division in Hudson County. While there, I was able to gain extensive practical knowledge of the inner workings of the court system, something that law school has a difficult time teaching. As a domestic relations attorney, family law provided the opportunity to fulfill my passion which drove me to law school in the first place: to give those without a voice, a voice in the ever intimidating justice system.
