After her clerkship, she practiced with law firms in Winston-Salem NC and Charlotte NC before opening her own practice in 1993.
She is a graduate of North Carolina State University School of Design with a degree in Architecture, and she received her legal degree from the Wake Forest University School of Law in 1988.
