As a team member at McIlveen Family Law I am passionate about helping individuals and families as they navigate through incredibly difficult issues in their lives. I thankful that I get to work with a team that truly considers the best interest of our clients and seeks to educate our clients so that they can make the best decisions for them regarding their cases.
Navigating the legal system adds a huge amount of stress to an already stressful situation and at McIlveen we strive to ease that burden by offering services and guidance to our clients. I have had many friends and family members struggle through divorces, child custody, domestic violence and many other issues with little to no help. That is what motivated me to become a legal secretary.
Maryland born and Colorado raised, I have lived in Charlotte for 11 years and I am starting to consider myself a Southerner. Growing up I was always interested in helping others and wanted to make an impact in the world, though even through high school I wasn’t quite sure what that would look like. I graduated with a B.A. in History and a minor in Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights studies in December 2010 and a month after graduation I left on a mission trip where I travelled to 11 countries in 11 months, working with non-profits and organizations to help ease burdens in third world countries.
Once I returned in 2012, I worked in training within the non-profit and retail sectors but I still hadn’t found my niche. So, in 2016 I began my studies at Central Piedmont Community College in the Paralegal Technology program.
Finding a career where I knew I could make an impact has made all the difference. I graduated in the spring of 2017 as a member of both Phi Theta Kappa and Lambda Epsilon Chi honor societies. I was fortunate enough to join McIlveen Family Law in August 2018.
