I distinctively remember in 7th grade reading “To Kill a Mockingbird”, and having that set my future law career in motion. I still to this day have my dog-eared copy of “To Kill a Mockingbird”, complete with notes and highlights by my seventh-grade self. I go back and read that same old copy every couple of years as a good reminder of the ideals and inspiration that sparked a career in law.

While in law school, I decided that my purpose, in law and in life, was to make the world a better place for children, and that going forward, everything I did would be in service of that purpose. Becoming a family lawyer was a huge step toward living out my intention and eventually having kids of my own made that even more personal. In school, I participated in an externship with Texas Lawyers for Children, had a summer clerkship with a family law firm, and volunteered for SMU’s Child Advocacy clinic, where I served as the guardian ad litem for children in CPS cases.

I really enjoy representing clients in family law appeals. When you advocate for your clients on the appellate level, sometimes you end up shaping the law in a particular area, and that is especially rewarding.

I joined the Walters Gilbreath team in the Spring of 2023. This firm brings the knowledge, experience, and expertise you would expect from a traditional law firm and combines it with leading-edge tech and innovative, efficient systems to enable attorneys to provide their clients the most effective legal solutions to the most difficult and delicate problems. I wanted to be at Walters Gilbreath because they invest in their people and provide a supportive, collaborative environment that empowers you to be the best advocate possible for your clients.

In my spare time, I create original abstract paintings and I love to fix, build, tinker, and DIY just about anything. I think being a creative fixer is a good trait both in art and law.
