I was raised in Lafayette, Louisiana and am a proud graduate of Lafayette High School. After earning my undergraduate degree from Tulane University in 2013, I spent two years serving in the Phoenix Corps of Teach for America. I returned to my hometown in 2015 and spent a year working as a legal assistant to Attorneys Marc W. Judice and Daniel C. Palmintier at Judice & Adley law firm. These early lessons on best practices in a legal career were formative for me, and I carry them with me to this day.
After enrolling at LSU Law in 2016, I was chosen to serve as a legal intern for Louisiana Sea Grant – a division of the federal environmental program governed by NOAA. This work involved researching legal issues surrounding the preservation and restoration of Louisiana’s coast, as well as educating the public on environmental issues facing Louisiana’s wetlands and coastal communities. During my 2L year, I served as a student attorney for LSU’s Immigration Law Clinic. Handling everything from drafting naturalization forms to providing legal advice to Green Card applicants at informational clinics, this semester-long placement culminated with an asylum candidate I represented being granted their asylum status.
Originally hired as a summer associate while still in law school, I have been with Scott Vicknair since 2018. Since that time, I have served as the personal law clerk to Partner Brad Scott, passed the Louisiana Bar Exam, and been promoted to full-time associate attorney working in the firm’s Succession and Estate Planning Division. I am licensed to practice in Louisiana and a member of the Louisiana Bar Association. I harbor a passion for improving the lives of our citizens, and I am happy to provide an important service to Louisiana families in need through my estate planning and succession work.
