I was named the Executive Director of Jacksonville Area Legal Aid (JALA) in December 2012.
Prior to taking the post at JALA, I was a civil trial attorney based in Jacksonville, Florida, specializing in consumer protection litigation, including wrongful foreclosure and consumer fraud, complex personal injury, wrongful death, and premises liability litigation.
I am a recipient of the Jacksonville Legal Aid Pro Bono award for 2006 and 2008, the St. Johns County Legal Aid Pro Bono award for 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012, and the Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Award in 2009 and 2011, for service rendered in the Fourth and Seventh Judicial Circuits. I currently serve as the 2015-2016 President of the Project Director’s Association, which includes the directors of the civil legal aid programs in Florida.
