I grew up in a working class family in a rural town in East Texas. My parents instilled in me the same small town values that many of my clients hold today. In was also there, in that same East Texas town, that I learned the value of hard work. As a first generation college graduate, I’ve worked hard to get to where I am today.
I’m a product of public education, starting in Kindergarten all the way through law school. I’m blessed to have had the opportunities I’ve had, and want those same opportunities available to all children. I’m proud to have spent the first part of my career in public service, working hard to better educational opportunities for all children in Arkansas.
In my free time, you can often find me binge-watching reality TV or chasing after my toddler. My husband and I love spending time outdoors, and have even ran a few marathons together.
I ran my last marathon less than a year after my daughter was born. It was one of the hardest things, both physically and mentally, that I’ve ever done, and I still consider it one of my biggest personal accomplishments. Running a marathon takes dedication, hard work, and sacrifice, and these are the same qualities that I bring to my clients every day.
