I grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY. I am the oldest of 3 children. My dad was an entrepreneur. I began working at 14 years old and continued working throughout college and law school. I attended college at Marist College and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, with an emphasis in Finance and Marketing. During college, I was involved in a serious car accident and a series of other legal issues, that made me decide to become a lawyer. I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to attend law school at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School at night. During law school I was actively involved and became the first ever night law student to become the Student Body President. I worked as a Personal Injury Paralegal during the day during law school. After I graduated law school and received my bar license, I immediately opened my law firm. I have been aggressively growing the law firm for the last 9 years, with over 30 people and 5 layers. We have won multiple awards. Recently, my law firm was ranked on the Inc 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies in the US. I was one of only 10 Women Owned Companies to rank. I am married with 3 children. My hobbies include studying business, listening to podcasts, travel and fitness.
