With always having an exceptional interest in law, I have spent all of my college experience studying to get a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology along with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. I decided to move to Charlotte, NC after being born and raised in Wilmington, NC, so I could have the opportunity to help as many individuals as possible through the legal field. It was not until two months after moving that I received a job offer for an amazing opportunity, and the wait was more than worth it. I highly enjoy everything I do and working for McIlveen Family Law was the best decision I can honestly say that I have made.

  I am the first individual to make the giant leap of moving away from home. Growing up, my life was not perfect; however, it became the foundation for the person I am today. Even though my parents went through a divorce when I was 16 years old, I have been lucky enough to have extremely supportive parents, and grandparents. Although getting a divorce, they were still able to show me what true love is like, and that no matter what the current situation may be, there is always a bright outcome. I honestly believe that everything does happen for a reason. You may not understand the reasoning at the time; however, you will later find that no matter what it was you went through, it happened because it was either meant to make you stronger or show you something you didn't know about yourself.

  I have always enjoyed having the opportunity of helping others in any way possible, and that is what makes me a great legal assistant. I have an immense understanding of what both children and parents experience during a divorce and separation, and I have used my own personal experience and education to help advise and guide my peers, and several others, during their challenging and difficult experience.
