Tell us a little about yourself.
My family moved around a lot when I was a child but the majority of the time we lived in various towns in Texas. After graduating from high school, I moved up to the Kansas City area and lived there until moving back to Texas in 2014. I began my paralegal career in 2002 and can’t imagine doing anything else. I have an amazing daughter, a wonderful fiancé, and 3 spoiled cats.
How did you get into the legal field?
One of my aunts called me out of the blue and told me that she had a friend who taught Paralegal Studies. She thought that it might be something for me to consider. At the time, I was working in collections and was trying to figure out what I wanted to do long-term. After looking into the Paralegal program, I was intrigued and signed up for classes the following semester. As soon as classes began, I was hooked and have never looked back!
What do you consider your greatest strength?
