I am currently an Assistant District Attorney for the 12th Prosecutorial District of North Carolina, which consists of Harnett and Lee Counties. I have been an ADA for 13 years and have handled the prosecution of all manner of criminal offenses. However, my primary area of prosecution has been felony drug offenses.
I was born and raised in Hawthorne, New Jersey, but found my home in Harnett County when I attended Campbell University for my undergraduate degree. After graduating from Campbell, I returned to New Jersey for a brief time while I attended Seton Hall University School of Law.

Upon graduation from Seton Hall, I returned to North Carolina where I took the NC bar exam. Three weeks after the bar exam, my husband, Bryan, and I were married. We settled in the Raleigh area, as Bryan had a job lined up in Raleigh after completing his Masters of Accounting at NC State University. I worked in private practice in Raleigh for about 2 years, dealing mostly in real estate, until an opportunity to join the District Attorney’s Office came about. I began in the District Attorney’s Office in April of 2007 and have been there ever since.

Bryan and I have a 10 year old daughter, Rebekah, and two frisky fur babies, Pepper and Reece. We reside in Angier, NC. We are active in our church, C3 Church, and enjoy spending family time camping.
Prosecution is truly my passion. It is the reason I went to law school, and I consider it a blessing to be able to live out my passion daily. I grew up in a law enforcement family. My father, grandfather, and great grandfather all served their communities as police officers. Their examples have instilled in me the importance of public service. For the past 13 years, it has been my privilege to represent the State of North Carolina in the courtroom. It would be my honor to serve the citizens of Harnett and Lee Counties as District Attorney.
