Growing up I spent the majority of my life living abroad in Asia and the Middle East. It was a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to and learn from cultures different from my own. I feel that my experience overseas has positively impacted me as it has helped in my law practice by allowing me to better understand and relate to the various circumstances that clients face.
When I returned to the United States for university I attended and received a BA from Baylor University. Soon after getting my undergraduate degree I enrolled at Baylor Law School. During my first summer in law school, I had the privilege to be a law clerk for the now-retired Honorable Bonnie Crane Hellums of the 247th Judicial District Court in Harris County, Texas. Judge Hellums was instrumental in influencing me to practice family law. She showed me the importance of viewing each case as people with real issues that need to be resolved. Most importantly, Judge Hellums taught me that each client deserves individual attention to find solutions to their specific case.
After receiving my law license, in 2014, I knew that I wanted to make family law my main practice. Since graduating I exclusively practiced family law. The lessons I learned from Judge Hellums have stuck with me and I take pride in my ability to come up with unique solutions in cases that fit the individual needs of each particular client.
