About Me

As a former high school teacher in downtown Raleigh, I quickly learned to adapt to new situations while keeping focused on my goals. I worked with efficiency, creativity, collaboration, and a service-oriented mindset, and I have transferred these skills to my legal practice to build successful outcomes for clients.
