I attended Oral Roberts University for my undergraduate degree. There I served as a Wing Chaplain and a Resident Advisor and lead missionary teams to various parts of the world in the summers. For the next era of my life, for 20 years, I flew airplanes off aircraft carriers for the U.S. Navy and served as a Naval Officer. I ended my career with more than 200 arrested landings on aircraft carriers. I also served as a squadron Legal Officer. While serving on active duty, I was able to complete my Master’s Degree, an MBA, from Old Dominion University. Just before I retired from the Navy in Virginia, I enrolled in law school at Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach on the G.I. Bill.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Wellesley College, then my Juris Doctorate in Law, and my Master’s degree in Communications from Regent University. I worked in the nonprofit sector for such organizations as the Flying Hospital International, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Operation Blessing, the Center for Law and Religious Freedom, and the Christian Legal Society, and most recently, before joining Holcomb Law, I served as the Executive Director of The Capitol Hill office of Eagle Forum, and as the director of Eagle Forum’s Political Action Committee. In addition to my duties with Holcomb Law, I am currently the Executive Director of the Republican National Coalition for Life.
I am originally from Ohio, but spent my high school and early college years in South Florida. I graduated summa cum laude from Charleston Southern University in Charleston, South Carolina, and earned my law degree from Regent University School of Law. In law school, I served as Presiding Officer of the Honor Council, an Executive Board Member of the Trial Advocacy Board, and a mentor for other law students as part of the Academic Success Program. I began my legal career here, at Holcomb Law, P.C., after I was hired as an intern during law school, and upon graduating from law school and passing the Virginia Bar Exam, was hired as a full-time attorney.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts from Hood College in Frederick, Maryland and graduated Magna Cum Laude. While in law school at Regent University School of Law, I interned for the Honorable Tanya Bullock in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations (J&DR) District Court in Virginia Beach. During my time at the USAO, I utilized my third-year practice certificate for sentencing arguments involving felonies, detention hearings for felonies, initial appearances, probable cause hearings, and supervised release violations. Some of these felonies included possession, distribution, and receipt of child pornography, wire fraud, cocaine trafficking, and robbery.
Growing up in Pennsylvania’s farm country, I always wanted to travel and experience greater things in life. I decided to become an attorney at fifteen, and I moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia after graduating high school. From that point forward, I geared all my decisions towards practicing law: from working for my state representative, to obtaining a Bachelor’s degree specializing in the philosophical and practical theories underpinning the US constitutional system, and to studying human rights and constitutional law abuses in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I earned my Juris Doctorate from Regent University School of Law in 2015, which I accomplished after two years of tenacious study.
