Biography

I was born in Lafayette, in the heart of Cajun country.

My grandparents lived next door, and there was rarely a day without a visit to or from someone in the extended family. Growing up, the family indulgence was season tickets to Saints games in the fall.

I played volleyball at LSU, the culmination of a childhood dream. I went to LSU law school. There I enrolled in a tax law course and discovered that I really am a numbers person, and thrived in a program that appealed to my logical brain. After graduating, I headed north to pursue a Master of Laws (LL.M) in taxation at Boston University School of Law. I liked the northeast so much that I took a position with the mergers and acquisitions tax practice at Ernst & Young in New York City.

My life in New York City was much like the lifestyle of NYC lawyers you might see on TV -- 80-hour work weeks, being on-call every minute and sleeping with my Blackberry under the pillow. Even after transferring to Atlanta, I still longed to be closer to home: helping real people with real problems.

So in 2012, I decided to move back to Louisiana. And, in a full circle moment, I was welcomed back to the law firm where I began my career in Baton Rouge -- Taylor Porter. I worked with families on their wills and trusts, and with family businesses on their succession plans. I helped an aging father pass his company off to his children.

With a range of legal experience working all over the country with many types of different people, I wanted to be able to provide people with the plans they needed to put their minds at ease.

So I brought that experience to the people back home, in this city I love so much.

For me, it’s the people who really make Louisiana home.
