I am an El Paso native, born and raised. I attended Radford School and then attended boarding school at Fountain Valley School of Colorado, Colorado Springs. After High School, I attended Guilford College, a Quaker affiliated school in Greensboro, North Carolina. I was a double major in International Studies and Philosophy. During my time at Guilford, I studied abroad in London, England in an educational program in conjuncture with Oxford University. At Guilford, I played on the tennis team and was honored with the distinction of being named All-American for Division III tennis and All-Academic.
After graduating from college, I attended Catholic University, Columbus School of Law in Washington, DC. While at CUA Law, I was admitted to the Comparative and International Law Institute and studied International Business Transactions at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.
Post-Law school, I was admitted into the Washington, DC Bar Association and practiced law with several law firms, focusing in corporate law, more specifically, mergers and acquisitions, corporate defense and patents. After 12 years in DC, I decided that I wanted to return to El Paso, to the warm weather, good food and smiling faces where I joined my family’s law firm that focuses on Family Law, Personal Injury/Medical Malpractice and Complex Business Litigation.
I was given the opportunity to practice Social Security Disability Law and discovered my passion for it. I then had the idea to branch out from my family’s practice and start my own firm.
