Being born and raised here, Newnan has always been home to me. I spent my adolescent years playing softball and lacrosse as a Northgate Viking until my graduation in 2013. After graduation from high school, I set my sights on Kennesaw State University, where I struggled to choose my major until I came across my mom's old law books. After talking to her and discovering our mutual interest in criminal justice, I decided I would try a semester of CJ classes. From there, I was hooked and knew I needed to find an internship to guide me in what I should do with the degree I was obtaining. I started interning with Taylor & Strickland in 2015, mostly going through discovery for criminal cases.

      What was meant to only be a summer internship turned into me working with the firm for over a year until I was hired part-time as an Investigative Assistant for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation during my last semester of college. I graduated early from KSU with a major in Criminal Justice in December of 2016 and continued working for the GBI after graduation. My experience working for the GBI provided me with insight as to how law enforcement processes and builds their cases against defendants. However, my plan had always been to go to law school so in February of 2018, I applied and was accepted at Atlanta's John Marshall Law School. 

      During my second year of law school. I was awarded a position on the Moot Court team for my oral argument skills. In my third year, I served on the Moot Court Executive Board, coaching other students in oral argument. I also served as the President of the Criminal Law Society in my third year, organizing events to promote discussion of important topics in the criminal justice system. Upon my graduation, I was presented with the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers (GAWL) Outstanding Graduate Award for my service within GAWL and other school organizations. 

      Since graduating and passing the bar exam, I knew there was only one place for me to practice law - Taylor & Strickland, where my passion for the law started. While I may be a young lawyer, I have experienced attorneys supporting me along the way. I am taking cases in all areas we practice and I look forward to serving the community that I call home.
