    Personal:

    Nancy was born and raised in Illinois and Ohio. She moved to Tampa after graduating from law school to begin her job as a prosecutor in Hillsborough County and has resided in Hillsborough County ever since. Nancy and her husband, a native Tampan, have been married over 22 years and have 2 children, 1 in college and 1 attending a local high school.

The importance of family underlies the choices Nancy has made throughout her legal career, and it continues to influence the type of practice she is creating as a solo practitioner, and the areas of law in which she chooses to practice. Family is the beginning and end for Nancy. One of six siblings, her father was a highly respected and accomplished attorney whose love of the law greatly influenced Nancy’s views about the law, the legal profession and her decision to become a lawyer.

Her greatest happiness is when her entire family is together and she happily travels with her husband and children to spend time with her mother, her siblings and the rest of her family. Nancy has sixteen (16) nieces and nephews, and sixteen (16) great-nieces and great-nephews. Nancy loves being an Aunt and Great-Aunt almost as much as she loves being a mom.
