A Little About Me

While I was born in Michigan, I was raised in Tennessee. Watching Middle Tennessee evolve and grow has been fascinating. Can you believe there were actually times you could travel through Nashville and not hit a pothole or a huge delay in traffic in the middle of the day? The upside to the growth in Middle Tennessee is the array of activities and restaurants seem infinite! I enjoy checking out the various greenways around town, playing a round at Topgolf with my family, or cheering on the Nashville Predators during their home games at Bridgestone Arena. 

I have both four-legged children and two-legged children. Some days, it is hard to decide which ones I like more! I am an avid animal lover, so much so that I generally do not even kill bugs but release them instead.  I also love to travel, whether it’s to the mountains, the beach, or across the pond. There are very few places I would not want to visit. My goal is to travel to all the places my father has on his bucket list. The Mediterranean is our next stop!  

Journey to the Law

My original career choice was to be a dental hygienist; however, after helping with a custody case, I felt my calling was to become a paralegal. I began my journey with Southeastern Career College, and the rest is history. I have enjoyed learning about the legal world and getting to help clients through their life journeys, some of which have turned into lifelong friends!  

Prior to joining Crow Estate Planning & Probate, I worked nearly eighteen years alongside two family law attorneys in Sumner County, Tennessee. Throughout my career, I learned about the depths of family law. I developed deep relationships with our clients while guiding them through some of the more difficult times of their lives. 

I am excited to deepen my knowledge in the estate planning and probate practice areas and look forward to assisting you with your matter!

    Hear From Our Clients

    Marshall P

    Mr Crow and his staff are amazing! Especially the person assigned to my account, so a special thank you to Callie! Callie answered all of my questions and set expectations during a very confusing time in my life. Mr Crow and his team worked diligently with my specific situation and were very results driven. I would recommend Crow Estate Planning and Probate to anyone looking for an estate or probate attorney.

    Benny H

    Today my wife and I completed (at Crow Estate Planning and Probate) our Will, Living Will, Power of Attorney for Finance and Medical. As a Tennessee CPA for over 20 years (now retired), I’d like to leave this review so that others may benefit. Our experience rating with with Crow Estate Planning and Probate is EXCELLENT. Our legal team was Kyle Shannon, Callie and Julia. This team was competent, courteous, and professional. They made a potentially complex experience “easy” despite multiple minor trusts involved. The charge for professional services rendered was very reasonable. My wife (Denise) and I would like to thank Kyle and his team (Callie and Julia) for a great experience that exceeded our expectations. I will return for legal needs and I will refer family and others to Kyle, Callie and Julia.
