I was born in Greenfield, Indiana, on December 19, 1987, to two amazing parents and grew up with two brothers and two sisters. I attended Greenfield-Central Community Schools through high school. While in high school I was a member of the French Club, three different choirs, and the National Honor Society. I graduated in 2006 in the Top Ten of my class and it has always been an accomplishment that I have treasured. My nieces and nephews always like to point out my plaque when we visit the high school where they now attend themselves.
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Political Science from Indiana University Indianapolis in 2010. After graduation from college, I decided to work in the retail and health care fields. This was a good time for me to re-prioritize my life and spend time with my cherished family members. I am so glad that I had this time because shortly before graduating college, I lost one of my biggest supporters. Without this time with my family, I would still be lost. Working in retail and in health care gave me a great insight into people and their problems that they encounter daily. The law helps solve problems and a big part of the solution is understanding why the problem exists. My experience after college was invaluable to my maturity to the law.
After working for about 2 years, I determined it was time to follow my passion and become an attorney. I then attended the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois and obtained my Juris Doctor in December of 2015. I was admitted to the bar of the State of Indiana on December 19, 2018, which coincidentally was my thirty-first birthday. That was an amazing birthday gift to me that year.
I began my legal career with the Indiana Department of Child Services where I spent three years in family law. While working for the Department, I gained a great amount of litigation experience and was known to spend a lot of my time in court. While I was in court, I was able to zealously fight for the desired outcome for my clients and I truly enjoyed the experience. Being in court also allowed me to feel comfortable in the crucible of trial and decision makers. I needed to be prepared and ready to address issues that came up and may not have been noticeable during preparation. One thing about litigation is that it is ever moving, and a lawyer must be prepared to deal with issues instead of panicking. My experience at DCS also taught me a great deal about humanity and the problems that people face in the system.
I joined Brooke & Struble, P.C., in August of 2022. My primary practice is Trust and Estate Planning, Civil Litigation, Municipal/Government Law, Firework Law, and Child Services/Juvenile Issues.
I live in Greenfield, Indiana with my family. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, and traveling.
