I graduated from law school and began working as an attorney with Cooper Ginsberg Gray in 2008. Since that time, my practice has focused exclusively on family law matters. I have been trained in the Collaborative Divorce Process since 2013, which allows me to represent my clients in the context of a professional team that is dedicated to reaching a resolution outside of court.

I served as an attorney member of a Disciplinary Committee of the Virginia State Bar from 2014 to 2022. I am also an Adjunct Professor at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School, where I currently co-teach a Virginia Family Law course. I also enjoy presenting to local and state-wide bar associations on various family law topics, and serving as a Board member for both the Northern Virginia and Virginia statewide Collaborative Divorce organizations.
