"My legal practice is an extension of my faith and personal life. I am blessed to be a mother to three beautiful children. Because the legacy I leave is so important, I have been very active in our community and have volunteered in many facets: in my church's single-parent, women's and youth ministry; Guardian Ad Litem; as a soccer and cheerleading coach; PTAs; Youth Haven; as a mentor to women and law school students; speaker at Ave Maria School of Law; the Abused Women's Shelter; and Providence House. My passion is to extend God's love by helping people in need and mentoring single mothers, as I have first-hand experience with the challenges they face. My personal and professional experience, as well as, my empathy and compassion for the whole person, influence my approach to the practice of law. I zealously advocate for my client’s transitioning into a new season in life."
