What gets you out of bed in the morning?

My father always told me as a child that, “if you love your job, you don’t work a single day of your life.”  I am blessed and enjoy having the opportunity to help people in need while doing something I truly love to do at the same time.

What is your favorite weekend activity?

I love to watch practically any sport, but I also love relaxing and catching up with family and friends.

Who inspires you?

My parents. They are the hardest working people I know. They dreamed big but worked for everything they have. Nothing was handed to them.

Do you have a motto or mantra?

“Do good, be kind.”

What is your favorite local restaurant?

I really love pho.  There is a great place called T & N Pho in West End Nashville.  It is a little hole in the wall but their food is fantastic. 

Do you have a favorite quote?

We are what we believe we are.” – C.S. Lewis 

What sparked your interest to work in the legal field?

As a kid, I experienced certain family members of mine in need of legal help but was let down. I’ve made it my goal to put myself in a position to not let that happen to other people.
