I was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in southwest Florida. After graduating from the University of South Florida with my Bachelor’s degree, I attended The Florida State University College of Law to earn my Juris Doctor. Outside of work I volunteer with Metropolitan Ministries and Big Brother & Big Sisters. I also enjoy quality time with my family, sporting events and anything outdoors. In addition to Spanish, I am also fluent in Polish. Prior to my legal career, I was a licensed massage therapist where I directly treated patient’s injuries sustained from the negligence of others. It was here when I learned how frequently insurance companies mistreat victims in an effort to save themselves money. I aggressively represent those injured as the result of others’ negligence including but not limited to: auto accidents, slip/trip & falls, victims of negligent security, as well as families in wrongful death cases.
