Growing up in Greenville, North Carolina, made East Carolina University the obvious choice when I decided where I wanted to complete my undergraduate degree. I graduated in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in Communication. While my heart will always belong to pirate nation, the one constant dream I have had throughout life was to become and attorney.
In 2013, after going through a divorce, I made the best decision of my life and decided to chase that dream. I attended Elon University School of Law, where I graduated in the top quarter of my class. While at Elon, I was a Guardian Ad Litem, where I represented children in the foster care system, President of the Family Law Society, and a member of the Trial Advocacy board. I truly believe in Elon Law and I am so thankful for the wonderful professors and amazing mentors who helped shaped my career. While there were many challenges, I will always believe “it’s the hard that makes it great.”
My reason for wanting to be an attorney is simple. I want to make a difference in the lives of others, as cliché as that sounds. As a divorcee, I understand firsthand how difficult divorce can be. No one should have to face it alone, and I hope I can help others as they face the difficult decisions and questions throughout this time in their lives. I understand the pain and heartache associated with domestic matters. However, I, also understand that being divorced does not define who you are or more importantly who you will become. My divorce led me to pursue a career in family law and I am so thankful for that.
I am excited to begin my career at Kennedy Law Associates. From the first time I walked through the door, I felt incredibly welcomed. I feel like this firm provides an environment that strives to put clients first and goes above and beyond to do what is in the best interest for the family.
