Background & motivation
I have always rooted for the underdog. Whenever I watch a baseball game that involves two teams other than the Texas Rangers, I’ll ask my Dad which team is favored to win, and root for the other one. I feel called to represent individuals who have treated unfairly by their employer, or who are given the run-around by insurance companies when they are hurt.
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Political Science. I then graduated from Notre Dame Law School in 2009. Since that time, I have spent the majority of my career relentlessly advocating for individuals over corporations. I love the thrill of the courtroom – but my favorite part of my job is getting to know my clients. My practice is 100% devoted to litigation, focusing primarily on the FLSA (overtime and minimum wage claims), discrimination, and breach of contract claims, in addition to representing those injured by the negligence of others.
Since I was young, I never accepted the explanation that “Life’s not fair.” I always questioned: “Does that mean we shouldn’t work to make it more fair?” I am honored to work with such talented lawyers and staff, that all truly believe that the legal system can be used to make the world a fairer place. In addition to practicing law, I love spending time with my husband, daughter, and extended family. I am a practicing Christian, and a board member of Mercy House Ministries, a maternity home in Colleyville, Texas that offers shelter, hope and help to single women facing unplanned pregnancies.
