 Southeast La. Legal Services


Areas of practice:

I currently practice Family Law with Southeast Louisiana Legal Services.


I love to travel, shop, watch TV and the latest movies.

If I had more time, I would:

Learn how to speak another language, likely Spanish.

What is the biggest challenge facing attorneys today:

I think the biggest challenge facing attorneys today is balancing work life with home life. I think that will always be a challenge.

Community involvement:

I have volunteered with Teen Court for the past two years. I currently serve as the Teen Court Committee Chair for 2014. I also volunteer at the Self Help Resource Center with the Family Court in Baton Rouge .

Best thing about being a lawyer:

The best thing about being a lawyer is the sense of reward you get when helping someone who truly could not help themselves.

Bet your didn't know:

I absolutely love Scooby Doo!

Currently reading:

Nothing. I read enough in law school. LOL.

What was the turning point that made you decide to become an attorney?

When I learned about the Civil Rights Movement in elementary school, I decided that I wanted to become an attorney. I wanted nothing more than to help individuals fight against injustice.

Mountains or Beach?


Favorite place in Baton Rouge:

Kona Grill located in Perkins Rowe. I love sitting on the patio when the weather is nice.

Favorite BRBA project or event:

My favorite BRBA project/event would have to be anything associated with Teen Court. I am very passionate about working with the youth and Teen Court allows me to do just that.

Favorite law school professor:

I actually have two favorite law school professors: Professor Russell Jones and Professor Donald North from Southern University Law Center. I learned a lot from both and really enjoyed class time.


Favorite sport:

My favorite sport to watch is football, but my favorite to play is softball.


Person I would like to have lunch with:

I would like to have lunch with First Lady Michelle Obama. I really admire her and I am sure she could teach me a thing or two..


Culinary talent:

I'm not much of a cook, but I do know how to bake cookies.
