I was born in Queens, New York and raised in Tampa, Florida, where I have lived most of my life. I am an Italian American who, unfortunately, cannot cook.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Florida State University (Go Noles!). While attending FSU, I interned at Moffitt Cancer Center and at the Executive Officer of the Governor. I also worked as a server at Beef O’ Brady’s. After graduation, I worked as a professional liability broker, brokering malpractice insurance to attorneys.

Prior to law school, I met my husband, who is from a small town in Polk County, Florida, at the Gasparilla Pirate Parade. I attended law school at Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida. I worked hard in law school and graduated in the top 11 percent of my class. I served as an Article and Symposia Editor on the Stetson Law Review, a Moot Court Board member, and a Teaching Assistant for Legal Research & Writing. During law school, I interned in the legal department of an insurance company and served as a federal judicial intern in the Middle District of Florida. I am the only lawyer in my family.

I’ve always practiced employment law. Prior to joining WFC, I worked for a large management-side employment law firm for five years, where I represented companies before the EEOC and in federal and state employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, and wrongful termination claims. After that, I worked as in-house counsel on the employment law team for a big corporation. My experience representing companies has given me a unique perspective and advanced skillset to now represent employees facing workplace issues. I am committed to advocating for the rights of employees, to the fullest extent possible.

I have been involved in employment lawsuits involving all forms of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, breach of contract, unpaid wages, unequal pay, disability discrimination, and Family Medical Leave Act violations, in federal and state courts throughout Florida. I have also advised and counseled many employers on an array of employment-related topics, including everyday practices, reasonable accommodations, medical leaves of absence, and terminations. While my litigation past provides me the ability to handle complex matters, my passion has always been utilizing my skills to help individuals, especially those navigating a difficult time in their lives. I am now able to use my legal experience in the corporate world to help individuals navigate challenging employment law issues.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my two young daughters, husband, and golden doodle. We enjoy the many great attractions Tampa Bay has to offer, and are often frequenting the Florida Aquarium, ZooTampa at Lowry Park, Curtis Hixon Park, Glazer’s Children Museum, and the YMCA.
