As the daughter of restauranteurs, I grew up in the Hospitality Industry. From a young age, I knew that this fast-paced, energetic, and rewarding industry is where I belong. I appreciate good food and good people, both of which are staples in this business. At twenty-one years old, I became president of a ACDBE-certified food and beverage company. My background in the industry allows me to understand the needs of my clients and present unique solutions.

While Atlanta is home, I have also lived abroad. There is nothing more exciting to me than exploring new places and cultures. Since traveling is my favorite thing to do, I have traveled to more than forty countries. The experiences I have had while traveling have taught me how to navigate differences in opinion and understanding— a vital skill for any lawyer.

When I was thirteen, I was selected for and served on the Atlanta Braves Youth Advisory Board where I developed my passion for helping others. Since that time, I have always found different ways to serve my community. In college, I was Student Government President. In law school, I volunteered to support the Pro Bono work of the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation. Today, I continue to volunteer through various organizations.
