About Me

I concentrate my practice on litigation and mediation of divorce, child custody/parenting, alimony, child support, child relocation, adoption, and dependency and neglect. I have broad trial and appellate experience and also assist clients in the preparation of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. I am admitted to practice in Tennessee and Mississippi, and I practice extensively in both jurisdictions.

I am a native of Batesville, Mississippi. I attended Rhodes College, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy in 2002. I then returned to Mississippi to attend the University of Mississippi School of Law, where I graduated with my Juris Doctorate in 2005. Following law school, I clerked for the Honorable David M. Ishee during his tenure with the Mississippi Court of Appeals.

I am also active in my community. I volunteer for for Memphis Area Legal Services, Inc. and the Community Legal Center. I also serve as an elder at Idlewild Presbyterian Church. I am an avid runner and outdoors enthusiast, and I especially enjoy spending time with my husband and our two boys.
