I was born and raised in Chesterfield County, Virginia and graduated from L.C. Bird High School in 2004. In 2006, I relocated to Whidbey Island, Washington, where my husband was stationed for U.S. Navy. We lived there for three years before returning home to Virginia. My husband and I have been blessed with two sons, Brandon and Finn. In 2012, I obtained a new career at a busy traffic law firm in Richmond, where I met Lindsay. In 2013, Lindsay created Hartz Law, P.C. and brought me on board as her Paralegal and Office Manager. I have been blessed to help build this firm with Lindsay and so excited to see where the future will take us. I spend as much free time as I can with my family and friends. In the warmer months you'll find me searching for an addition to my Mermaid collection and when it's cooler, it's time for marathon baking and watching my Pittsburgh Steelers.
Born and raised in Waverly, I am very familiar with the culture, the cops, and yes, the courthouse. My first tickets were written in Sussex, so I have been fighting offenses in Sussex for nearly half my life, first as a defendant and now as an attorney. I know what it takes to make an impression on the sitting judges in the counties in which I practice and what is going to be required in order to get a reduction for you. I attended Virginia Tech where I graduated cum laude, majored in sociology, with an emphasis in crime and deviance, and minored in psychology; little did I know that my minor would come in very handy in my profession. After a brief stint as a SOL (Standards of Learning) Remediation Specialist in Virginia public school system, I attended Regent University School of Law and graduated in 2008. I spent my next two years as a judicial clerk for three Judges in the Family Court of the State of Delaware where I learned valuable lessons on judicial decision-making. Upon returning to Virginia, I had the opportunity to handle claims arising from the devastation of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico for several months before embarking on a more traditional law practice. After working for a prestigious family law firm in Richmond and a high-volume traffic firm in Midlothian, I decided to open my own practice, which has grown and thrived even in a tough economy. I am blessed every day to be surrounded by positive and intelligent people and I truly enjoy every moment of my practice of the law. In 2019, I decided to take on a new piece to my practice, which is serving as a Guardian ad Litem. I have been so honored to be able to give children a voice, with this piece of my practice. I have had the privilege of meeting and representing some of the brightest children and I look forward to continuing to do so. In my "spare time" you might catch me coaching Volleyball at my Alma Mater, Tidewater Academy, spending time with my Husband, Jason, and our dog Seamus or adding stamps to my Passport.
