Director of Community Partnerships
People are my passion. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. That desire to understand the human experience has led me to every adventure in my life. I have had what could seem like quite a varied professional career trajectory - but it all boils down to how much I love to tell a good human story. I started that journey as an actor in theatre - my first love in life. And through the exploration of story, character and collaboration, I have found myself working in media, hospitality, event design, marketing and most importantly, in community building. I met Kevin Hickey and was immediately excited by his approach to law, which is one that includes supreme professionalism and experience, but also empathy and understanding. As someone who has found herself needing a divorce attorney years ago, I know how hard it is to find someone who can help you navigate this process. You need an expert, but you also need someone who understands. That is why I am so proud to be a part of the team at Kevin Hickey Law Partners.
I came to NWA by way of Greenville, SC! My family and I love being Arkansas residents and are very proud of the great community we have found in Bentonville. I'm a big supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness, having lost my amazing mother to the disease in 2012, and have also been a proud foster parent to some amazing cats and kittens through my work with Crystal Creek Rescue. In addition to a deep love of the arts, I am also the ridiculously proud mother of a 2 year old, Nancy Annalynne. (Yes, I am THAT mother. My Instagram should really be hers!) I love to lose hours of my weekend to documentaries on Netflix and have been known to cry at an American Idol episode or two. I'm a music lover who can rock out to The Rolling Stones, George Jones, and Taylor Swift. Nancy currently asks to listen to Meryl Haggard’s "Mama Tried", "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", and the BeeGee's "Staying Alive" in about equal amounts. I consider it a sign that I'm helping to guide her toward being a pretty cool gal! I'm a new cook and enjoy trying out new recipes... or a new restaurant. I love to travel and am one of the rare people who actually finds airports exciting places. Ha! I also firmly believe the only thing better in the world than a great big laugh... is hearing my daughter laugh!
