“I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, where I lived until 1996, when I headed north to Boone, North Carolina to attend college at Appalachian State University. During my time at A.S.U., I earned a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in English. I also became a serious outdoorsman. After completing my Master’s degree, I settled in the Piedmont where I taught English at North Carolina State University and at Elon University before pursuing a career in the Law. I am a proud graduate of the Elon University School of Law. While at Elon Law, I completed coursework in Criminal Law, Family Law, Litigation, and Estate Planning and I interned for the Alamance County District Attorney’s Office and the High Point District Attorney’s Office. My passion is to help people and law practice is my avenue for service. Now, I enjoy spending time in the outdoors cycling, hiking, backpacking, and fishing with my family.”
