I am passionate about the law and I care about my clients. These qualities make me a strong advocate to have on your side during this very difficult time in your life. As a mother, I know how much your children mean to you and how you would do anything to shelter them from harm. Children are often the innocent victims in their parents’ divorce. While it may be impossible to shield them entirely from the impact of your divorce, I will work with you to minimize the impact on your children as much as possible. My goal is to educate you regarding North Carolina law and how it applies to your case, so that you understand all your options. Divorce can be a terrifying experience, but I will empower you with the knowledge of what to expect every step of the way. I majored in mathematics and then worked in the banking industry for many years prior to becoming an attorney, so I have a strong financial background to handle complex financial support and property division cases. I’ve represented clients in Forsyth, Davie, Davidson, Rowan, Alexander, Iredell, Catawba, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus and Gaston counties, on matters involving child custody, child support, equitable distribution, post-separation support, alimony, contempt, and breach of contract claims. Not every case requires litigation, and many cases can be resolved out of court using alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative law, arbitration, and mediation. But if litigation becomes necessary, you can rely on my years of trial experience to protect your interests in the courtroom.
I went to law school to help people. I then specifically chose the field of family law because I know my strength lies in helping people who are going through a hard time. I work hard to make my clients feel confident, secure, and comfortable. I want to help them take on any challenge that comes their way. I have represented clients in court in over fourteen counties across the state of North Carolina on matters involving child custody, child support, equitable distribution, post-separation support, alimony, contempt and domestic violence. I have also settled many cases using alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration. As your attorney, I am dedicated to making sure you have all of the tools and support you need to get through this difficult time in your life.
I am a strong believer in learning, challenging myself, and empowering others. I attended Florida State University where I majored in Hospitality Management and minored in Business Management. In my 8 years of customer service I have become passionate about putting your needs first. I am hardwired to pursue goals until they are reached, and when obstacles arise, I become even more determined to succeed. As a Senior Paralegal, I am one of the first people you will speak with, and I look forward to helping you begin the next part of your journey.
Having graduated from Wake Forest University with a double-major in Politics & International Affairs and German, I have always known I wanted to pursue a career in the legal profession. As Paralegal and Client Relations Manager, I have the opportunity to work directly with each and every client. I strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible during this often difficult transition. It is my job to assist the attorneys in preparation for your case while also keeping you informed and equipped to begin a new chapter of your life.
