Biography

While in law school I decided to focus my practice on family law. I wanted to be an advocate for people who needed help with whatever devastating life crisis they were dealing with, and family law was it. I partner with my clients to formulate a legal strategy that achieves their goals in the most efficient and practical way possible. I am a skilled negotiator and an effective litigator, utilizing both of these tactics as needed. My legal practice has grown to include estate planning, probate, and estate litigation.

I graduated from Christopher Newport University with a B.A. in Political Science, and I graduated from Regent University School of Law. I am admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

I began practicing law in Hampton Roads, working for a boutique family law firm. My husband's side of the family is from Hanover County, so we were delighted when a wonderful job opportunity for him brought us home to the Richmond area years ago.

My weekends are spent enjoying my sweet husband and three children, our Holland Lop bunnies, and planning for my next race.
