From an early age, I was always drawn to the idea of helping people. Growing up a Texas girl, I loved the idea of southern hospitality and was always happy to help those in need. Whether that was helping a friend at school, a neighbor at home, or anyone else in the community, I always enjoyed doing what I could to have a positive impact on the lives of those who needed it most.
By the time I graduated high school, I decided to stay close to home and attend Texas A&M University in College Station. Unsure of the exact path I wanted to take in life, I decided to major in Business Administration so that I could have the opportunity to expand my understanding of the business world and keep my options open.
I spent my time at Texas A&M working and studying, learning to juggle a busy schedule and forge my own path through hard work and dedication to my studies. When it came time to graduate in 1993, I was proud to accept my bachelor's degree in business administration, graduating cum laude.
Shortly after graduation, I realized that if I wanted to find a profession that would allow me to combine my passion for helping people and my desire to make a difference, entering into law school might just be the best path forward. So I applied for law school and was quickly accepted into the Texas Tech University School of Law. Armed with my enthusiasm and a strong desire to learn, I set off for Lubbock, Texas to begin my journey toward becoming an attorney.
During my years at Texas Tech University Law School, I quickly turned my focus to two particular areas of the law: personal injury and business law. I took a specific interest in these fields because I realized how many people were affected by them, as well as the impact I could have by providing excellent legal counsel to those involved in such cases. After three years of studying and working hard, I earned my Juris Doctor in 1997 and successfully passed the state bar that same year.
I love what I do because it gives me the opportunity to help others and move their life in the right direction.
