I was born and raised on the west coast of Florida. After many hot summers, I wanted a change of scenery and decided to attend Indiana University. I received my bachelor’s degree in history from IUPUI. I have always enjoyed learning about different perspectives in history, law, and life.

My interest in law comes from a mock trial I was a part of in middle school. I returned to my home state for law school at the University of Miami where I am currently a J.D. candidate. My career goal is to work in the field of estate planning. I believe that estate planning can help provide peace and comfort to someone by letting them know that their family will be taken care of when they are gone. 

Why I Love What I Do

The reason that I want to be a lawyer is I want to help people. I enjoy being a part of the team that helps to solve problems for clients. Working at The Probate Law Firm has allowed me to gain knowledge that you cannot get in a law school classroom. At the firm, I have learned about the probate process and enjoy working with the rest of the staff to figure out the best solutions.
