I’ve been helping others find a fresh start through bankruptcy and divorce for almost 20 years. When I was in law school I just happened to be working for a bankruptcy attorney. One of my first cases was a couple whose daughter suffered from a brain tumor, and after a multitude of surgeries and treatments, the family was left with bills in excess of $200,000 after insurance. They had no choice but to file bankruptcy and get some reprieve from the overwhelming amount of bills necessary to save their daughter. Soon after, I met a young mother who had an inordinate amount of debt. She got pregnant by the love of her life, and the young man convinced her to buy a car along of a myriad of other items of value in her name. When the baby came, the young man took off with the car, leaving this penniless young mother alone with a baby and a ton of debt. This woman’s only option to get back on her feet was through a bankruptcy. Case by case, I started to see how bankruptcy provided opportunities for people in unfortunate circumstances to realize a fresh start and decided to dedicate myself to this practice of law. Every day I take pride in helping my clients work towards a brighter future whether it’s through bankruptcy or divorce. I am a graduate of Regent University School of Law and hold an advanced law degree from Georgetown University. I am a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and the Tidewater Bankruptcy Bar Association. I have written two books about bankruptcy, and have been selected to supervise law student interns in bankruptcy. I live with my husband in Virginia Beach where we are active in our church, Virginia Beach United Methodist Church. I also volunteers with Stand Up For Kids, an organization that works with homeless and at risk youth and young adults.
