I am originally from Miami, Florida. After graduating from Beloit College in 2020 with a degree in Political Science, I moved down to New Orleans in the heat of COVID-19 where I attended Loyola University New Orleans College of Law and graduated in May 2023 with my Juris Doctor.

At Loyola, I was a member of the Moot Court program, Sports and Entertainment Law Society, Hispanic Law Society, and the Law Clinic. In Moot Court, I was selected as an oralist and brief writer for the Mardi Gras Team in the Annual Tulane Mardi Gras Invitational Appellate Sports Law Competition, finishing semi-finalists amongst law schools across the nation. I also had the pleasure of serving on the Moot Court Executive Board as the Intramural and Selection Chair.

In the Sports and Entertainment Law Society, I served as Treasurer and participated in the Tulane Professional Basketball Negotiation Competition. In the Loyola Law Clinic, I served as a Rule XX Student Practitioner in the Criminal Defense section of the Clinic where I represented my first client for attempted first-degree murder, felon in possession of a firearm, and unlawful discharge of a firearm. Additionally, I was inducted into the Order of the Barristers in May 2023 for my exceptional skills in trial advocacy, oral advocacy, and brief writing.

I also had the privilege to clerk for the Hon. Judge Nandi F. Campbell in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court Section “G”. There, I was exposed to numerous criminal matters and all phases of litigation while learning from Judge Campbell and her invaluable perspective coming from the bench. Specifically, I gained an awareness for representation on behalf of individuals in need to achieve a just and adequate outcome they deserve.

I was hired by Scott Vicknair as an associate attorney in the personal injury division, with a specialization in motor vehicle accidents, premise liability, and wrongful death actions. I am licensed to practice in Louisiana. In my personal life, I strive to spend every moment with my family, friends, and my English Bulldog – Cooper! I am a sports fanatic, enjoy fishing, golfing, and anything on/near a beach.
