Attorney and Counselor at Law

I didn’t know I wanted to be an attorney until I went to law school. Now, I can’t imagine doing anything else! I particularly like the practice of family law because it allows to me carefully listen to the details of a client’s individual situation and come up with a unique strategy to help them accomplish their goals. Every case is different, and I enjoy the challenge of coming up with a course of action that will effectively address the concerns of the client and move the case towards a resolution.

I was born and raised in Abilene, Texas. I graduated from Cooper High School and spent a year at Abilene Christian University before transferring to Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. People think I'm crazy, but I loved living in Lubbock! There is just nothing like a West Texas sunset. After college, I moved to Granbury, Texas and commuted to Fort Worth, where I attended Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law). After law school, my husband and I settled down in Fort Worth where we live with our two sons, daughter, and three dogs.
