What is your educational background and what type of law do you practice?
I was born in Houston, Texas. I received my bachelor’s degree from New York University – Gallatin School and my law degree from the University of Houston Law Center. I am a family law attorney licensed in Texas and California.
Why the interest in relationships and dating?
In every circle of friends I belonged to, my entire life, I have always been the go-to girl when it came to relationships and dating. My friends came to me, not because I was born with relationship and dating knowledge nor because I was super experienced, but because I was a great listener. Through the many stories from my friends, through my own experiences, and through extensive reading/studying, I have accumulated a great amount of knowledge on relationships and dating.
Further, as a family law attorney, I have a front row seat watching the end of a lot of relationships. The stories I hear from my clients, while guiding them in the midst of one the most stressful periods of their lives, opened my eyes and helped me understand what makes a strong and thriving relationship and what does not. I have seen people separate for just about every reason. I know what unhealthy relationship habits look like, and I know the kind of crap that ruins relationships.
