I am a native of Ponca City, Oklahoma. I attended the University of Kansas, studying English Literature. After graduating, I promptly moved to New York City to apply my love of reading to a job in the publicity department at St. Martin’s Press in the famous Flatiron Building. While there, I often found myself visiting the legal department to get the dish on author contracts and libel issues. I continued my career in public relations (this time at a fashion company—another passion of mine) with law school in the back of my mind.

In 2009, I began law school at Fordham University in New York. During my time at Fordham, I interned with firms involved in entertainment, trademark, and immigration law.  My husband, Adam, and I moved to Asheville in 2012.  We have two boys.  

I started practicing as an attorney in 2013, and I represent clients in business and real estate transactions and litigation.  I also assist clients with trademarks and estate planning.  

I am a graduate of Leadership Asheville, Class 34, and have served as President and Secretary of the WNC Chapter of the North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys. From 2019 through 2022, I served as a member of the Buncombe County Board of Elections. I also donate pro bono time to the Mountain Area Volunteer Lawyers Program through Pisgah Legal Services.
