I received my Juris Doctorate from the University of Wisconsin in December 2005 and was admitted to practice law in the State of Oklahoma in 2006. I was admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma in 2006 and have practiced in both state and federal courts in Tulsa since that time. I am trained as a mediator and in Collaborative Family Law, and currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Oklahoma Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
My practice also focuses on estate planning and probate, and I am a member of the Tulsa County Bar Association's Estate Planning Section and the Tulsa Estate Planning Forum. I pride myself on my relationship with my clients and enjoy working together to ensure that their wishes are understood and that we prepare for as many contingencies as possible.
I have dedicated a significant portion of my practice to my LGBTQ+ clients, and am an active member of the Equality Business Alliance. I have previously served on the Board of Advisors at Oklahomans for Equality and I was the first Oklahoman to be a member of the Family Law Institute, a joint venture of the LGBT Bar and the National Center for Lesbian Rights that allows experienced LGBTQ+ family law practitioners to share collective wisdom and to discuss cutting-edge legal strategies for representing members of the LGBT community.
I am currently the chair of Tulsa County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service Committee and serve on the Board of Directors for the Tulsa County Bar Association.
I grew up in Tulsa, graduating from Booker T. Washington before slowly heading north. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas and spend each March cheering on the Jayhawks, who always win in my brackets (I, perhaps not coincidentally, always lose the bracket pool). I returned to Tulsa after law school and met my husband here. We have one young daughter, two cats, and a dog. From what I can remember, back when I had free time I enjoyed reading, knitting, and sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and good friends.
