“Through [my] exposure to the family court system, I learned firsthand of the great need for children and parents to have a voice during one of the most challenging times in their lives.”

I am a native Houstonian and proud to be practicing in Houston. After earning my undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin with a double Bachelor of Arts Major in Pre-Law Government and Pre-Law Sociology with a Minor in Women’s Studies, I lived and worked in both New York City and Mexico City, employed by a New York-based international law firm. I worked in their international corporate securities and acquisitions sections.

After a few years, I returned to Houston and graduated from South Texas College of Law in May of 2013. During law school, I studied abroad in Ireland and Malta, taking courses focused on the European Union, international business law and international civil rights law. During my final year, I was one of three American law student interns at the United Nations’ International War Crimes Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia located in The Hague, Netherlands.

Upon graduating from law school, I began my legal career as part of two legal defense teams representing two principal officers in one of the country’s largest corporate fraud cases. Then, I transitioned to large litigation firms to work on complex litigation cases in a wide spectrum of matters, including patent infringement, class action lawsuits and pharmaceutical litigation.

It is during this time that I became a court-appointed Child Advocate (“CASA”) volunteer, representing abused and neglected children in Harris County. Through this exposure to the family court system, I learned firsthand of the great need for children and parents to have a voice during one of the most challenging times in their lives. My experience as a CASA volunteer was the driving force behind my decision to focus on family law. Since then I have represented clients in a variety of matters that impact one’s family including divorce, premarital and postmarital agreements, paternity suits custody and child support modifications and complex property division.

When not working, I am active in the community, volunteering in charitable organizations and professional groups, and serve on committees and boards of directors. I am an active alumna for the University of Texas at Austin, Episcopal High School and River Oaks Baptist School. I am a member of St. John the Divine Episcopal Church.
