I have a bachelor’s degree in communications and enjoy client-facing professions.  Before the pandemic, it was suggested that I investigate paralegal studies.  I completed a certificate program and began working in the field about three years ago.

I currently work as a litigation paralegal at Hale Ball Murphy, PLC in Fairfax, Virginia.  I work with/ have experience with estate planning and administration as well. 

 What do you like about the area of law that you work in?

I enjoy assisting my supervising attorneys and colleagues with the representation of our clients regarding establishing and protecting their/their families estate plans.

I love to cook, travel, take photos and spend time with friends and family.
