Prior to joining , I worked with Mama Justice herself, Missy McKinney Wigginton, for nearly 11 years. We both worked at a local firm in Tupelo, but when Missy founded her own firm, I knew I had to go with her.
Before working in personal injury law, I graduated from Warren Central High School in Vicksburg, MS, and enrolled in the Army via its delayed enlistment program. I left for boot camp in 1992 and spent the next 5 years in the service. In 1997, I left the Army, got married, and was blessed as the mother of two boys. My children are now grown into men, and I have graduated from Itawamba Community College with an Associates in applied science. In 2016, I earned a Bachelor of Science in criminal justice from Ole Miss.
Throughout my career, which began when I moved to Tupelo in 2008, I have worked my way up from a receptionist to a paralegal. I enjoy working in personal injury law because I am compassionate and caring and because I love helping people. I try to do everything I can to ease some of the stress that clients and potential clients find themselves dealing with after they suffer from an injury or lose a family member.
I do my best to relate to clients on a personal level. I speak with everyone who comes into our office like I do my family and friends. I enjoy meeting with potential clients, taking on new clients, and making sure everyone feels comfortable speaking with me about their questions and concerns, When someone is dealing with a wreck, suffering from an injury, or dealing with family matters, I want them to have a sympathetic ear and a helpful legal team.
I truly believe they can find that here at .
Aside from working, I spend as much time with my family as possible. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, running, and doing crafts, like quilting and crochet, whenever time permits.
When the opportunity arises, I take pleasure in volunteering. I participated in clean-up after the tornado, and regularly help with various fundraisers for my church and community.
