"I run a firm that employs 5 employees and several contractors. We handle private cases in State, Tribal, and Federal Court. We also manage and administer the Muscogee Creek Nation Tribal Defender Program. We also take public defender appointments on the Federal CJA Panel."

"I spend a lot of my time taking my kids to sport's practices and games. My oldest son plays baseball, my younger sons play football and lacrosse, and my youngest does jujitsu. When I am not doing that, I like to travel, read and shop for shoes. I really love my job and spend a lot of spare time working."

"I dress up in suit almost every day for work. I can sometimes get away with business casual and I like a classic, chic look. When I am not in work clothes, I must confess I wear a lot of athleisure. I wear a lot of neutrals with pops of color. Greys, blacks, and I really love navy blue. I like Fall and Spring because I do not like wearing a coat, but I love cardigans."

"I like shoes. I have a massive shoe collection that includes Louboutins, Jimmy Choos, Fendi, and Chloe. I love them, every one.
