I have a strong sense of justice. I do not like for anybody to be mistreated, I do not like for anybody to be wronged. I'm originally from Georgia. I've lived in eight different states. I've been working in the legal field since...for about 20 years. My journey into the legal profession actually started when I worked for an attorney as his personal assistant. I met a paralegal there and became close to her, and then I decided that I wanted to go into the field. I have worked in many different areas of the law, and I will have to say that employment law is my favorite now. We try to look out for the people that are wrongfully terminated or discriminated against in any shape, form, or fashion that is illegal and be their voice for them. Employment law gives you a great sense of reward when you have completed a case with a client and you see them go from being distraught and downtrodden to being a person who's regained their dignity and they have a sense of hope. It's very important for me to stay in this field because I love to be able to help people.
