    I am a Shreveport native, but a piece of my heart will always belong to Central and South Louisiana. I graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science with a concentration in Pre-Law and a minor in Journalism with a concentration in Mass Communications. After working for a mid-size law firm for a few years as a certified paralegal, I moved to Baton Rouge to attend Southern University Law Center where I obtained a juris doctorate degree. I was then admitted to the Louisiana State Bar and licensed to practice.

    I began my career as a judicial law clerk at the First Judicial District Court for the Honorable Erin Leigh Waddell Garrett. I also worked in the Appeals Division at the Caddo Parish District Attorney’s Office and as a Staff Attorney for Acadiana Legal Services in Shreveport, Louisiana, where I focused on administrative law issues such as: Medicare/Medicaid, food stamps, social security, and social security disability.

    Outside of work, I’m very proactive in my state, community, and church. I started and still manage a non-profit project, Humble Hands Food Pantry, which aims to aid the homeless and elderly populations in the state. I’m also an active member of the State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, the Junior League, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated.
