"Life is too short to spend it with someone who does not make you happy. I want to help people sort through the conflicts and complexities that come with divorce so that they can more easily move forward with their lives. As a wife and mother, I appreciate that no two marriages are the same and every family has their own story. I aim to put clients at ease while empowering them to take control and make informed decisions about their future.

Understandably, people contemplating divorce are sometimes hesitant to contact an attorney because they are worried about the legal consequences and the cost. I try to be a source of information and guidance throughout the negotiation or litigation process.

Born and raised in Charlotte, I left only briefly to earn a political science degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon returning to the city I call home, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the legal field. Prior to attending law school, I began working for Hatcher Law Group. I had the advantage of continuing to work at this firm throughout my time as a law student. The opportunity to gain practical experience working with Hatcher Law Group’s Managing Partner was a valuable education in itself. To this day, I use my on-the-job training to be more efficient in my practice and bring value and peace of mind to all my clients."
