Tell us a little bit about where you work.

I am a paralegal at a downtown Annapolis law office where I have worked for 8 1/2 years. I work primarily in the areas of family law, criminal law, personal injury, and other civil matters.

Where are you from and where have you lived?

I’m from Glen Burnie, MD and have lived there most of my life. I went to college in Pennsylvania and returned to the Anne Arundel County, MD area post-college.

Tell us a little about your educational background.

I attended Central Pennsylvania College in Summerdale, PA and received an Associate of Science degree in Paralegal Studies. I currently attend Stevenson University and expect to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies in December 2013.

Favorite hobbies?

I like to travel, hang out with friends, work out (especially yoga, spin, and I’m always interested in trying new things a la Groupon!). I like to try new restaurants and lay out on the beach.

What about family?

I have a large blended family. I have one brother, one sister, one step-sister, one step-brother, and I am the baby of the family 🙂 I have 8 nephews and I love them so much. No kids or spouse for me, and there’s no rush!

Tell us something unique.

I could eat eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and never tire!

Finish this sentence: Being a member of Junior League inspires me . . . to be more involved in the community.

Why do you love Junior League of Annapolis, Inc.?

The JLA is a great organization which is goal focused and organized! It’s nice to have a system in place. But more than that, I love the goal of the JLA and I feel like I can really make a difference.
