Born and raised in Winston-Salem; I attended both Moore Elementary School and Forsyth Country Day. After graduating high school, I served a two-year church service mission in Anaheim, California. When I returned from my mission, I enrolled at Wake Forest University. While at Wake Forest I managed the Wake Forest Men’s basketball team under Coach Skip Prosser. I graduated from Wake Forest University in 2006.
After working in Charleston, South Carolina, I enrolled at Wake Forest School of Law in 2007. During law school, I served as the Student Solicitor to prosecute honor code violations. I was also amember of the National Trial Team. During my law school summers I interned with a Superior Court Judge and at our District Attorney’s office. When I graduated in 2010, I was honored as a member of the Order of the Barristers.
After law school, I wanted to stay in the community that has given me so much. I was hired as an Assistant District Attorney in Forsyth County in 2011. I began my work as the dedicated Domestic Violence Prosecutor. In this position, I worked with victims and implemented a process to prepare victims at the battered women’s shelter for court on a weekly basis.
I later received the assignment to be the special driving while impaired prosecutor. In this position, I prosecuted approximately 300 driving while impaired cases and had a 90% conviction rate. As a result of my success, I received the Mother’s Against Drunk Driving Prosecutor Hero Award.
During my time as an Assistant District Attorney, I have prosecuted approximately 2,000 district court cases. My current responsibilities include screening and prosecuting repeat domestic violence offenders in Superior Court and prosecuting driving while impaired cases where victims were injured in the crash.
I was elected as the Chairman for the Forsyth County Republican Party in 2018 and served in that role until 2020.
Outside the courtroom, I worked with Family Services, Mother’s Against Drunk Drivers, the Battered Women’s Shelter, and am involved in my church.
