Areas of Practice:

Business, finance and real estate law.

Favorite BRBA project or event:

BRBA's Easter Eggstravaganza. Taking a break from work to go hide Easter eggs for kids at EBR public schools was a treat. It's amazing how quickly so many eggs can disappear!

Advice for law students:

Force yourself to consider the real-world, practical application of what you're learning.

If I had more time, I would:

Work on my tennis game so that I can one day beat my husband!

Best thing about being a lawyer:

Getting to work alongside intelligent and caring people on a daily basis.

Favorite place in Baton Rouge:

Tiger Stadium in the fall.

Favorite law school professor:

Professor Levasseur.

Person(s) I would like to have lunch with:

My deceased grandparents.
