40; born in New Orleans; bachelor’s from University of Georgia and law degree from Campbell University; married (her husband, Toby, is also a Legal Elite winner, Page 42) with three daughters and a yellow Lab named Tadley.
Why she chose to specialize in this field
I did not actually expect to be a family-law attorney. In my third year of law school, I did an externship with a family-law firm and took family-law courses. I was immediately drawn to the idea of practicing in N.C. District Court as well as helping individuals going through transition. I enjoy the various issues that arise in family-law cases, which range from custody issues to financial issues. More importantly, I enjoy helping people transition out of a difficult situation.
What she’d be if not a lawyer
An editor for Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
Best advice received
When making a difficult life decision and feeling overwhelmed, my mother said to me, “Make a decision, and then make it right!” She and my dad have taught me to keep moving forward, particularly when life seems difficult. This advice keeps me from getting caught up in the “what ifs” of life and keeps me moving in a positive direction during difficult times.
