As a kid, I watched as my father served as the Circuit Clerk in Escambia County, Alabama. The experience of going to the courthouse every day remained imprinted in my mind, eventually leading to my decision to enter law. Before committing to being a lawyer, I worked as a felony probation officer in Georgia and as a police officer in a suburb of Birmingham. Initially I wanted to work as a prosecutor, but I was swayed by personal injury work. While teaching trial skills to other attorneys, I met attorneys working for Alexander Shunnarah and was enticed to join the team. When off the clock, I mentor through the Aspire Movement and coach basketball each year for the Trussville Parks and Rec.
