I graduated cum laude from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas with Honors in Psychology in 2001. After graduation, I taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grade Language Arts at the Alief Learning Center in Houston, Texas. My students were considered “at-risk” meaning they were instructed to go to the alternative school campus due to behavior problems at their home schools. Although being offered a continued position with the school district, I pursued law school with the goal in mind to reach out to such “at-risk” youth in the future. I attended Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, Texas and started my law practice in November 2009.
At that time, the most unique elements of my practice included the necessary legal support and education about the criminal and juvenile justice system in Texas for my clients and their loved ones.
In 2014, I transitioned out of law and pursued a role in educational administration seeking to be part of a preventative solution for people like the clients I served in criminal and juvenile law practice. This journey took me to Rochester, New York . Being away from Houston in a new city ranked top 10 for the arts & creative women business owners inspired me. I worked as an Assistant Principal at a charter school in one of the most challenging parts of the city while founding Rosewater Rituals, see Rosewater Rituals
Encouraged by the needs of today, I serve individuals in New York in areas of immigration law specifically those seeking a path towards citizenship and obtaining family-based visas. I also serve my hometown Texas residents remotely in areas of estate planning, general and artist contracts.
