About Me

My motto: I am a big Beatles fan, and I've always loved the lyrics "for tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun."

The best thing about Ward and Smith: is the diverse expertise offered by the incredible attorneys at each office. 

I became a lawyer because: I am passionate about serving my community by engaging in a profession that is challenging and rewarding.

One surprising thing people don't know about me is: I am an avid solo traveler. I recently traveled to France, Spain, Portugal, and Greece. 

Where I'd like to live and why: I'm thrilled to be living in Asheville. From hiking to amazing restaurants, this is a fun and vibrant community that I am lucky to be a part of.
