Favorite Sport to Watch? I love NASCAR!
Interestingly, the house that I grew up in is right around the corner from our office. My favorite part about my career as a paralegal is that I learn something new every day. Each client and their cases are unique and I have a chance to impart the knowledge that I’ve gained while being a part of Hancock Injury Attorneys.
I was born in Plant City, Florida. However, I was adopted when I was less than 48 hours old and brought home to Carrollwood. In 1995, I was selected as a dancer to perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. From 1997 to 2000, I was a professional dancer at Busch Gardens Tampa Florida. I was also a Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleader during the 1997, 1998 and 2002 football seasons, which included traveling with and cheering for the team during Super Bowl XXXVIII in San Diego, California, and am honored to have a Super Bowl XXXVIII ring.

Biggest role in life? Mommy to two little boys!
Before becoming Firm Administrator, I started as a Legal Assistant in 2008 and was promoted to a Paralegal soon after. Being Firm Administrator allows me to be hands-on in the movement of our cases while supporting the other hard-working members of my team. I enjoy the face-to-face interaction with clients and being a part of the process that gains them closure during difficult times that follow a serious injury.
I am originally from Connecticut but have lived in Florida since I was eight years old. I have a large traditional Italian family with members residing in Florida, Connecticut and our homeland, Sicily. I am a proud mother of two young boys who keep me busy when I am not at work; together we enjoy watching animated movies, swimming in our neighborhood pool and being creative. I am coffee obsessed, and if I get my pick of a restaurant, it will always be a local sushi spot!

What makes me smile? Playing with my 2 Great Danes, Aspen and Houston!
Before becoming a Paralegal, I started as a Legal Assistant here at Hancock Injury Attorneys. While in that position, I learned an incredible amount about the law, which helped me make an easier transition into being a Paralegal. I am excited to help my clients and make them feel comfortable and confident while going through a not-so-comfortable process.
I was born and raised in West Virginia and moved to the Tampa area two years ago. Before moving, for 4 years I had the experience of being a manager at a multi-million dollar, global company. Outside of work, I enjoy exploring Tampa Bay, going to the gym and finding the best vegetarian spots around town!

Favorite weekend activity? Margaritas on the beach!
What I love most about my job is the satisfaction you get from helping people in your community. Also, being from the Dominican Republic I am able to serve and build a relationship with the Spanish population that resides here.
I’m originally from Queens, New York and I moved to the Tampa Bay area when I was 12 years old and fell in love with the community. During my free time I love to go to the beach with my two dogs, I like to adventure out and discover new places or relax at home with a good Netflix movie.

Ideal Night? Sushi, Netflix and a comfy couch.
As the Marketing Director at Hancock Injury Attorneys, my job is to showcase how truly great & unique our firm is to all Tampanians. Using all things social media, SEO and a plethora of other techniques, I make sure those that should know about our law firm, do.
As a third-generation Tampa native my love for this historic city runs deep. Other things I love include my big Italian/Cuban family, my Alma Mater: the Florida Gators, Harry Potter, NPR & traveling with my friends. I can quote something from probably every “Friends” episode and when someone says, “Have you gone to that new (Fill in the blank) restaurant yet?” the answer is most certainly, yes.

Favorite Hobby? I am an avid fisherman!
My favorite part about this job is knowing that all steps taken with every case helps not only the client, but the entire Tampa Bay area. In this position as a Legal Assistant I am hoping to further my knowledge on law as well as help my team with anything possible. I am truly grateful and excited to be a part of such a wonderful firm.
I was born and raised in Russia. At age 8 I was adopted and moved to St. Petersburg, Florida. My family loves the outdoors which sparked my passion for travel and fishing. During my free time, I love taking my dog Bindi and exploring everything Florida has to offer from hiking in Myakka River State Park, to eating and enjoying the view at Sparkman Wharf.
