After graduating from Wake Forest University and Brooklyn Law School, I knew that I wanted to pursue an area of law where I would face new, daily challenges and have meaningful interactions with people. I found that perfect balance with real estate. I began my real estate law career in 1998 and since then have worn every hat, including managing pre-closing, post-closing, bookkeeping, and document preparation tasks. The satisfaction of streamlining important and potentially stressful closing transactions inspired the formation of Hodge & Temple in 2006, a firm that would allow our attorneys to pursue a shared passion for helping people, while affording each of us the time to start our own families. I know a house is more than a home. It is a financial and emotional investment, which becomes a part of who we are. I have had homes everywhere from Ohio to California, from Brazil to North Carolina. I’m thrilled to now be making my home in Marietta, Georgia with my husband, Greg, and our two children, Charlie and Delaney.
