“How will you ever know what you can do until you try? You might surprise yourself.”

I was attending Nursing School at West Georgia College, when my mother passed in 1996. I was left with the responsibility of caring for my younger sister and brother, and a 5 month old son. This event, along with my new-found responsibilities, led me to change my career path.

I became a secretary for a general practice law firm in Decatur, GA. Within 2 years, I was promoted to Paralegal, supporting two Pro-Tem Judges and one attorney at the firm. I excelled in Criminal, Family, Personal Injury, Worker’s Compensation and Employment Law. I received my Associate’s of Applied Science Paralegal Degree from DeKalb College in 1999. In 2001, I joined the Law Offices of Sheryl Burke.

Working in this field for almost 15 years has taught me that genuinely helping people carries a greater value than any monetary gain can provide. I am also a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, The National Paralegal Institute, and The National Notary Association.
