As a native of Kermit, Texas, I was raised to believe that helping people and serving my community is one of the most important values a person can have. Coming from a legal family, I was introduced to the law from a young age. I spent a lot of time at my father's law firm growing up, learning about the law and the impact that an attorney can have on the lives of others, particularly those in need. My father worked with countless clients across the state of Texas deal with difficult personal injuries by helping them seek compensation that could help them recover and get their life back. I really admired the work that he did, and was able to see first hand the impact that he had on the lives of others.
When it came time for me to go to college, I decided to stay in my home state and attend Southern Methodist University in Dallas. I chose to study psychology while minoring in business so that I could be prepared to not only handle the business side of being an attorney, but to also equip myself to handle the emotional side of legal casework. After watching my father help so many injured victims growing up, I knew how important it was for an attorney to empathize and provide emotional support — as many of these victims are going through a lot both physically and emotionally.
As a Texas native, I value the opportunity to get to know my clients and help them through whatever difficult situation they may be facing.
