Additionally, I have continually been involved in managing court dockets, performing legal research and preparing draft orders for the court; I am highly knowledgeable in managing cases from inception through discovery as well as litigating before the courts.

In addition to my degree-focused studies, I have received innumerable hours of additional relevant training and have also been tasked with conducting specialized training in a seminar setting for the Jackson County Family Court.


Throughout my career I have exhibited a commitment to quality and consistent compliance with critical governing directives, standards, policies and procedures. I am confident in my ability to deliver immediate and long-term results and you will find me to be a performance-driven leader and collaborative team player focused on achieving and surpassing goals.
