I was born in upstate New York to wonderful parents. I attended college on academic scholarships and graduated from SUNY- Orange in 1987 with a degree in Business. I married a Navy man and moved to Connecticut and then to the Seattle area. While in the Seattle area, I attended and graduated from Highline College with a degree in Paralegal Studies and began my career as a Paralegal at a prominent personal injury law firm run by Richard Adler of Adler-Giersch, P.C. My husband and I eventually moved to Limestone County in 1992 and I began working as a Paralegal for a local law firm run by Clint Brown, Jr. and former Circuit Judge, Sherrie Paler. Shortly after Judge Paler was elected to the bench, I too changed jobs and worked for two former associates of that firm for over 15 years and later, on my own, as a contractor.
By far, the BEST job, has been here with Hodges Trial Lawyers, P.C. They are champions for the rights of their clients and the pursuit of justice for not only those injured or who have been wronged, but other clients wrongly accused. My areas of expertise are injury law, which includes automobile accidents, work injuries and Social Security Disability. I have successfully assisted and represented claimants before the Social Security Administration. I have been a member of the Paralegal Honor Society, a Paralegal affiliate member of ATLA and, in the past, have served on the local community college’s Paralegal Advisory Board. I am married and have two adult children of whom I am very proud. We have two rescue dogs that make life fuller. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband and best friend of 32 years.
