I spent my first two years of college considering a path in politics, law, or business before I was provided with an incredible opportunity to intern for a sitting North Carolina Senator in Washington, D.C. During my internship I witnessed the positive impact that attorneys can have on the decisions that affect our communities, and it was then I knew what my path in life would be.
Once I began law school, I was faced with choosing which area of law I would practice. I decided to take a variety of classes that would expose me to different avenues of the law in hopes I would discover what I was most passionate about. While I enjoyed courses in real estate, immigration, and contracts, it was not until I took an Adoption Law course that everything became clear. I was fortunate to have a professor who had a passion for adoption law and, in turn, sparked that same passion in me. I went on to observe other attorneys in family law and came to the realization that what I really wanted was to be an advocate for the best interest of children and a guide for families who are facing some of life’s toughest challenges.
I joined Sodoma Law to work alongside some of the most fearless family law attorneys I know, but of equal importance to me was finding a firm that aligned with my values and passions. Of the firm’s 5 Core Values, my favorite is “commitment to client, community and each other” because it reminds me every day of why I became a lawyer – to help people. My goal is to be consistently present for my clients not just as their advocate but as their rock in the stormy seas that often accompany separation and divorce.
When I’m not in the office, I spend my free time visiting local coffee shops with my husband. On Saturday’s you can usually find me at the park with my poodle, Henry. I enjoy participating in half marathons and traveling to Wilmington, North Carolina to see my family whenever the opportunity arises.
