I am a native of Fort Worth, Texas. I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2012, receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Business. I graduated cum laude and in the top third of my class from The University of Miami School of Law.
Throughout my time in Miami, I had the privilege of working with domestic and international clients and companies, assisting with cases from the initial pleading stage through resolution. During 2014, I worked as a law clerk for Aran, Correa, Guarch & Shapiro, P.A., a Miami firm that primarily practices commercial litigation, maritime, and real estate law. Before working at Aran Correa, I interned in the Consumer Protection Division of the Miami-Dade Office of the Attorney General, where I worked directly with an Assistant Attorney General, who specialized in litigation under the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act.
At the University of Miami School of Law, I was elected onto the Executive Board of the Business Law Review as the Symposium and Events Editor. Additionally, the University awarded me its Litigation Specialization Certificate for my demonstrated proficiency in litigation. This award was only given to six students out of four hundred graduates. While enrolled at The University of Miami School of Law, I interned for the Miami-Dade State Attorney as a Certified Legal Intern where I was given the opportunity to argue various motions in court, and conduct multiple bench trials. While in school I also clerked at the Law Office of Frank Wolland, in Miami. Finally, in my second year of law school, I competed in the John T. Gaubatz Moot Court Competition where I placed as an Octo-Finalist.
