I grew up in Heavener, Oklahoma and have lived in NWA for the last several years. I have fond childhood memories of working with my grandfather on his nearby farm in Coaldale, Arkansas. The values instilled in me during that time persist to this day, and I am proud to call Arkansas my permanent home.
After finishing high school, I attended Carl Albert State College while working at a local grocery store. Two years later, I graduated as the top academic student in my class, earning an Associate of Arts in Pre-Law Criminal Justice. After Carl Albert I enrolled at Northeastern State University. During my time at Northeastern I worked as a supervisor and cook for on-campus restaurants while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I also served as an international student mentor. I graduated summa cum laude from Northeastern with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.
After finishing my undergraduate studies, I attended the University of Arkansas School of Law where I graduated magna cum laude. During law school, I completed internships with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas as well as the LeFlore County, Oklahoma District Attorney’s Office. I currently focus my practice in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury, family law, and immigration.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring the trails and rivers of Arkansas, watching the Razorbacks, and driving my Trans Am.
