It was during high school when I was first introduced to the legal industry by working part-time as a legal secretary and then as a legal assistant for a small full-service law firm. I continued on this path, working as a legal assistant through college. Upon graduation I began my career at my current firm and attended law school at night while maintaining my full time legal assistant position during the day. I have worked side-by-side with Terry for 20+ years and as his associate for the past 16. I am a military spouse and have been married to a wonderful Army Officer for the past 20+ years. I have been recognized as a Super Lawyer, a Thomson Reuters service, in 2013.
