Professional info

In May 2014, I graduated with my Juris Doctorate from the Florida Coastal School of Law, located in Jacksonville, Florida.  During law school, I worked part-time for three different local attorneys which provided invaluable practical experience in intellectual property law, criminal defense law, landlord/tenant law, and family law.


I passed the Kentucky bar exax on my first attempt in July 2014 and was formally sworn in and admitted to the Kentucky bar by Justice Will T. Scott in September 2014.
