About Me

I am a Greensboro native and recent boomerang. Prior to returning to Greensboro, I practiced in New York at a preeminent global firm, where I had the opportunity to represent clients on high-profile, novel cases. I also had the privilege of serving with the Federal Defenders of New York and functioning as in-house legal counsel for a multinational organization.

Throughout my career, I have been active in pro bono work, mentoring, and outreach programs. I want to continue to make a meaningful impact as an attorney in Greensboro.

I joined Brooks Pierce because its adherence to the highest standards, culture of collaboration, and generalist approach align with my own values and dedication to professional excellence.
