Growing up, my parents always said, “When you are passionate about something, use that passion to help others.” My passion has always been, and will always be, helping those in need.
Growing up in Martinez, Georgia, I can remember spending my senior year of high school organizing a charity benefit concert for local children with terminal illnesses. While at Georgia Southern University, I studied abroad in Costa Rica studying, not only their culture but researching poverty and globalization. My commitment to connect with people did not stop there. While obtaining my law degree at the University of Georgia School of Law, I focused, primarily, on indigent defense, representing clients in criminal matters who could not afford an attorney.
For three years after graduating from law school and obtaining my Georgia law license, I continued working as a criminal defense attorney for indigent defendants in Georgia. Towards the end of my tenure, I began to consider different career paths. What I did not want to lose was my commitment to fighting for people’s rights.
Working in personal injury has reignited that passion inside of me. When it comes to making sure a person is made whole again, I make sure my work is accurate and complete.
I have an Old English Sheepdog named Pongo who lives with me in Augusta, Georgia. In my free time, I like to travel across the country and abroad exploring all that this world has to offer.
