After graduating from Goose Creek High School, she attended the University of South Carolina, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. She went on to attend law school at USC, graduating in 2005. After law school, she was employed at the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office as an Assistant Attorney General, defending the State against civil lawsuits by convicted persons. During this time, she handled hundreds of trials as well as appellate work, submitting briefs to the South Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.
Colleen then went to work for the Eleventh Circuit Solicitor’s Office, comprised of Lexington, Edgefield, Saluda, and McCormick counties. She prosecuted a variety of cases, including domestic violence, property crimes, assaults, robberies, and murder. In 2012, she finally returned home and began work at the Ninth Circuit Solicitor’s Office, which covers Charleston and Berkeley counties. After two years in Berkeley County prosecuting violent crimes, she began her own practice, ready to put the skills she had acquired over the past decade to work for her clients.
