I was born and raised in Nashville, TN, which is somewhat of a rarity these days! I attended Harpeth Hall, an all-girls school for 8 years and graduated in 2016. I followed in my sister’s footsteps for college and attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. To say I loved TCU is an understatement—I cherish my experience there dearly and am so grateful to have made some of my best friends during my time there. I never missed a TCU football game as a student, and I still love cheering on the Frogs from afar to this day.
I knew I wanted to become a lawyer from a young age, as my mom was an attorney. Originally, I wanted to practice criminal defense, so I chose to major in Criminal Justice. I’ve always been fascinated with true crime podcasts, T.V. shows, and documentaries. As a Criminal Justice major, I pursued several opportunities in the realm of criminal law. I interned at a criminal defense firm in Fort Worth, as well as the Tennessee Post Conviction Defender in Nashville.
As a Junior in college, I was projected to graduate early, but because I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving TCU just yet, I added a second major in Political Science. Though I never saw myself pursuing a career in politics, I still found the “hot topics” quite interesting, and my two majors complimented each other well. In addition to my Criminal Justice internships, I also had the opportunity to intern for Congresswoman Kay Granger as well as the Republican Party of Texas.
As my time at TCU drew to a close, and I was confronted with the decision of where to attend law school, Vanderbilt was always my top choice. I knew I wanted to return to Nashville, and the prestige and reputation of Vanderbilt seemed unmatched.
I graduated from TCU, summa cum laude, in 2020, and began law school at Vanderbilt in the fall. It was only a few days into law school that I realized my dreams of becoming a criminal defense attorney were not as glamourous as I had once imagined. My sights switched from criminal to civil work, and my summer clerkships followed suit. I got my introduction to estate planning during the summer before my final year of law school as a clerk at Holton & Mayberry in Nashville. I received a crash course in wills, trusts, and wealth management. Upon graduating from Vanderbilt in May of 2023 and sitting for the bar, I joined Crow Estate Planning & Probate. Beginning my legal career at a well-established firm and learning from John and his team is such a privilege!
In my free time, I love to work out at Iron Tribe Fitness. Also, although I don’t necessarily enjoy running, I’ve finished two half marathons and have made it a goal to run one annually.
I’ve also been lucky enough to travel around the world, and it’s something I love to do whenever I can. In college, I spent a Semester at Sea—I lived on a ship with 500 students, taking classes while circumnavigating the globe from North America to Southeast Asia, the coast of Africa, and Europe. Today, I’ve been to 25 countries across 6 continents. I’ve seen many of the infamous world wonders including the Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China, Egyptian Pyramids, Colosseum, and Christ the Redeemer Statue.
