I grew up in the Midwest and headed south after attending college at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. I have 18 years’ experience as an executive assistant, legal assistant, paralegal, and project manager supporting C-Level executives in Legal, FinTech/Financial Services, Information Technology, and Software. Prior to joining Stokes Wagner, I supported the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer at a tech company, and Office Managing Partners in litigation and labor and employment. I have trial, mediation, and arbitration experience including in-person support at a federal jury trial. In the everyday, I provide ongoing case management support to our clients and attorneys. Stokes Wagner sold me on the flexibility and opportunity for personal and professional growth. I am grateful for this opportunity to learn.

When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my family and friends, restoring our 1910 Craftsman bungalow, reading, and taking regular road trips to discover all the barbeque, farm-to-table, and breweries the South has to offer.
