Expertise Legal Services, Victims' Services, Immigration Law
I’m a lover of the arts and the Lakeland community. I am also a mother of two awesome boys, Paul (age 9) and Jordan (age 7), and wife to local veterinarian Erin “Doc Rock” Rothrock. Together we are renovating our south Lakeland home, traveling, and caring for our small zoo of 18 furry, feathered, and scaly friends. I am also an activist for a number of social justice causes and particularly dedicated to defending the rights of immigrants, women, and children.
I have been an attorney since 2004. After working in the non-profit sector for several years, I went into private practice and founded Foley Immigration Law. I have been practicing immigration and nationality law for over eleven years. In other words, she helps foreign nationals and their families navigate the legal system so that they can live and work in the U.S. legally. Throughout my career, I have dedicated a large portion of my time and energy to assisting victims of crime, particularly domestic violence and human trafficking. My present goal is to develop my non-profit, Red Tent Initiative, into a holistic center for victims’ services that addresses all of the aspects of a victim’s well-being that will facilitate their transition from victim to survivor. When it is fully operational, Red Tent will provide everything from emergency shelter to legal representation to relocation assistance via a close-knit network of local providers and partnerships with organizations in other parts of the U.S.
