Work Experience

LYONS & LYONS, Bonita Springs, FL September 2015 – April 2016 Paralegal / Law Clerk

Developed and presented tailored unique estate plans for individuals and couples; managed high volume real estate transactions and prepared various contracts, addenda and other legal documents in preparation for impending closings; refined organizational and multitasking skills in an independent setting while managing the expectations of various departments.


Sole Proprietor August 2014 – April 2015

Learned and crafted extroverted personality skills to provide digital marketing products to realtors, including photography, website exposure, and digital advertising. POST & SCHELL, P.C., Philadelphia PA

Casualty Litigation Associate August 2012 - July 2013 Discovered efficiency’s role in quality work and developed my life’s motto. Worked independently to investigate, negotiate and settle cases; developed persuasive skills arguing motions before state court judges. Oversight was sparse and as thus I perfected self-education, which simplified my boss’ jobs by requiring less guidance and assuming responsibility for my independently-finished products. MORGAN, LEWIS & BOCKIUS, LLP, Philadelphia PA

Litigation Associate March 2011 - February 2012

Worked on a team of 10 attorneys to investigate and remediate the lending practices of a major Wall Street bank. This job taught me both the value of reliance on other individuals but the necessity of teamwork to accomplish tasks correctly and in a timely fashion. I also learned the value a team can bring to even projects which, on their face, appear to require the just one individual, and how to handle the challenges inherent in producing a single product where a unified vision eludes the group.

MONTGOMERY, MCCRACKEN, WALKER & RHOADS, LLP, Philadelphia PA Summer Associate; Law Clerk Summer 2009; September 2010 - March 2011 This job taught me teamwork at its finest; a well-oiled machine of 30+ lawyers, paralegals, secretaries, experts, and witnesses crafting the finest product possible given the materials available with which to work. This was an indispensable part of my education and the pride I felt working for this team defined my work ethic; there is nothing quite like the feeling that one’s work makes a difference, when you can look down and see that difference in a very literal manner.
