I was born and raised in Northern New Jersey. I am very grateful to have been raised by fun, loving and supporting parents. Living in a Hispanic household, I learned that hard work and perseverance will get you where you want to be in life. In the summer of 2006, my family and I made a life changing decision and we moved to Gastonia, North Carolina.

In 2009, I graduated with my Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies. My passion for learning made me continue my education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Four years later, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Criminal Justice. While in college, I was an active member of the Mock Trial team and served as the secretary and vice president.

Prior to working at McIlveen Family Law, I had five years of experience working as a personal injury and medical malpractice paralegal to many different attorneys. As Mr. and Ms. McIlveen’s executive assistant, I am able to assist them in their day-to-day busy schedules as well as assist them in building the future offices of McIlveen Family Law firm. My job is to make their job easier. As their executive assistant, I am still fortunate enough to handle some of their cases with them. Each client has a different story and I make it a priority to lend them a helping hand and a listening ear.

When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. We love watching sports, the outdoors and taking adventures.
