Why NCAJ NEXT?
I am interested in developing my professional leadership skills in a way that advances my development as an attorney and young professional. I am excited about the prospect of getting more involved in professional organizations that advance the mission of helping those in need and empowering, educating and connecting attorneys.
Why is the idea of civil justice important to you?
Civil justice is important to me because plaintiffs in North Carolina bear the burden of a highly complex and often technical legal system. Victims of negligence across the state deserve an educated and passionate advocate to fight for the justice they deserve even when the law isn’t on their side.
What’s your vision for the future of NCAJ?
I am excited to watch and be a part of NCAJ’s growth over the next five to 10 years. I would love to see NCAJ’s efforts result in reform of legislation that favors civil plaintiffs across the state.
Away from work …
I love to be active, including exercise, mountain biking, hiking, etc. I enjoy watching motocross, listening to podcasts, reading and gardening in my spare time as well.
