As a middle child, Nancy always had to fight for everything between her siblings. That struggle growing up and the drive for justice is what cultivated her desire to help the underdog, finding her purpose in law. However, as a young adult, and before her legal career, Nancy wanted to experience new places and see what was beyond Michigan. She landed in the Windy City. While living in Chicago, she also traveled the world, gaining invaluable experiences that enriched her personal growth and gave her a great appreciation for how diverse and beautiful each and every culture is.
Four years later, she returned to Detroit, Michigan to complete her Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice at Wayne State University. She then went on to the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and obtained her Juris Doctorate. While in law school, Nancy interned at the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic and participated in the Veteran’s Clinic as well as the Advanced Veteran’s Clinic. For the last few years she has worked under the Honorable Kevin J. Cox in the Third Circuit Court. She was also a council member for the Michigan State Bar’s Prisons and Corrections Section. There, she worked with fellow attorneys and participated in discussions with various entities to implement change that would help vulnerable populations, such as people incarcerated in the Michigan Department of Corrections. The Prisons and Corrections Section also participated in drafting recommendations for the adoption of changes in the Michigan Court Rules to make them more equitable. To better understand opposing counsel and effectively negotiate, Nancy completed a 40-hour Civil Mediation Training in accordance with MCR2.411.
