Chassity first discovered a love for the law and the legal industry when serving as a volunteer in high school for the DeKalb County Teen Court Program, assisting in rehabilitating juveniles and helping to transition them out of the system before adulthood. From then on, she always knew she wanted to work in the legal field and very much wanted to help people.

Chassity is the Estate Planning Paralegal. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University, where she created her own major combining her love of Political Science, film, and Communication Studies. After graduating, she worked in real estate law for almost a decade before making the transition to estate planning- a change she made upon seeing her grandparents begin to age and realizing that as rewarding and valuable as it was to help people obtain or save their homes, it is just as important to protect one’s home (as well as other possessions) for the long haul.

Having grown up in the South, one of the main things Chassity was taught all her life was a great respect for her elders. To always defer to, look out for, and cherish those who have come before and paved the way for the future. She finds it very fulfilling to be able to honor that important lesson learned from her parents and grandparents through her work in assisting the elderly through the estate planning process.

She enjoys reading and writing in her spare time (never leaving home without bringing some form of book with her since she was five years old), is a true Georgia Peach and proud of it, and considers herself a true cinephile. Chassity values family above all else, and truly believes there is no greater pleasure than time spent with her parents, brother, fiancé, and two young nieces.
