In her litigation practice, she has represented clients before federal and state courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the North Carolina Supreme Court, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals. She brings the legal analysis, negotiation, and oral and written advocacy skills she learned as a litigator into her land use practice.

She has also served as a law clerk for the president of the North Carolina Senate and as a judicial intern for Judge Jennifer Elrod of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
