Overview

I am a business litigator who helps clients navigate challenges related to commercial litigation, property, construction and Title IX issues.

With my focus on Title IX, I work alongside universities, colleges and other educational institutions when faced with claims of sexual harassment or discrimination. I also counsel institutions on their creation, writing and implementation of student conduct policies.

In my previous experience, I practiced with a large firm to resolve general contract matters, property disputes, construction litigation, surety & fidelity matters, and business tort claims. Prior to working with a firm, I served as the law clerk for the Honorable J. Michelle Childs, United States District Court Judge for the District of South Carolina.

Outside of work I enjoy volunteering within my community as well as travelling. My favorite destinations include Sweden and India. I especially enjoy weekend road trips exploring small-town America and visiting different American cities.
