    JD, Legal Researcher and Writer

    United States - Last active: 10/01/2014 - Tests: 1

    I have a wide range of experiences to draw from for many different kinds of projects, from drafting legal pleadings to social media campaigns and writing. Following graduation with my B.A. from UT Dallas, I spent four years as a teacher, from 2000-2004, prior to taking time off to start a family. And in addition to having a long-awaited new baby, I was gifted with an experience that changed my outlook on the meaning of my own life and future goals for my career. I became an activist as a result of personal experiences with bad health care and a lack of informed consent for dangerous prescriptions. Thus, my passion is in the area of mental health reform. My work has included lobbying, speaking with the media, working with victims and survivors, writing, researching, graphic design, social networking and public speaking. As a law student at SMU Dedman School of Law, I studied Products Liability, Medical Malpractice, FDA Law, Legislation, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, and Litigation. As a Student Attorney in the Criminal Defense Clinic, I represented approximately 80 clients under supervision from a licensed attorney and won my only trial. Since law school I have worked for lawyers on both civil and criminal matters, researching and drafting pleadings for everything from state and federal criminal defense to legal malpractice lawsuits, DTPA cases, breach of contract, tortious interference and real estate cases. My goals for the future include reforming prescription drug law, mental health reform, and working in constitutional law and criminal defense. I am especially interested in working for justice for the wrongfully convicted, including children who have been exploited by the legal system. I have also spent some time helping support moms who want to breastfeed to be able to do so as a volunteer for La Leche League, and educating others on various issues such as circumcision, natural childbirth, and holistic health. Specialties: Lobbying, Media, Social Networking, Writing, Research, Graphic Design, Advocacy Interests: Music, Cooking, Architecture, Photography, Gardening, Travel
