ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in "the region".  My family has been a part of this area for over 100 years.  Since I was a young girl, I developed a passion for advocacy in fighting for "the right thing" and providing a voice for those who need it.  I knew I needed a platform to do so; therefore, I concentrated on my education. I first attended the Honors Program at the University of Colorado (Boulder).  I then granduated from the University of Central Florida with dual degrees: Business Management and Criminal Justice. After graduating, I worked for Liberty Mutual as a Bodily Injury Adjuster for several years before attending Law School.  I graduated from Stetson University College of Law with dual degrees: J.D. and MBA.  In law school, I competed with the #1 Trial Advocacy Team in the country and was recognized for my advocacy skills in regular competitions. 

Prior to opening my own firm, I worked for three large insurance defense firms in the region.  There, I continued to build my knowledge on insurance companies' practices and how they work against people.  I decided I wanted no part of it and decided I had strayed from fighting for "the right thing" and so here I am: ready to fight for you.

I am the advantage.

"I want people to know that I am here to fight for what is right; to fight for them.  I want them to know that they have a voice and that I will make that voice heard. That's why I am here."
