PRACTICE AREAS: Civil litigation with an emphasis on product liability

LAW SCHOOL: University of Missouri

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT? As a very new mom, navigating the challenges of motherhood along with successfully managing my legal practice is my greatest accomplishment.  Since my return from maternity leave six months ago, I’ve continued to represent the firm’s national and international clients with the same vigor and dedication.

WHO IS YOUR LEGAL HERO? As a fourth-generation attorney, my legal heroes are those family members that practiced law before me. My great-grandfather, grandfather and dad all practiced in a small town in Arkansas and became nationally recognized lawyers. They accomplished more than most could imagine doing in their lifetime.


YOUR GREATEST FEAR?  Oversleeping for court.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?  Spending time with my family — my daughter, Lucy, who is almost 1 and my husband, Jason.

IF YOU HADN’T BECOME A LAWYER, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE?  I probably would have a career with more artistic creativity such as an architect or interior designer.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUNG LAWYERS? Find a good mentor and learn as much as you can from that person.
