I am a native of Wilkes County, North Carolina and attended Wake Forest University. Growing up, I attended West Wilkes High School. I spent much of my childhood working on farms, in factories and on construction sites to pay my way through college and law school. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wake Forest University in 1990 with a double major in political science and economics. I then attended Campbell University, where I received my law degree from the Norman A. Wiggins School of Law in 1994. I started my practice in 1994 and now serve clients throughout the triad, northwest North Carolina and the southeastern United States. I also proudly serve on the boards of Victory Junction and Wake Forest Deacon Club.
