Lenae joined our team in October 2022 as an experienced Trusts and Estates Paralegal. She has worked in various areas of law over the last 12 years but none of those areas offered her the fulfillment like that of helping grieving families through the difficult, and often stressful, estate administration process. Lenae has roughly 5 years of estate administration experience.
While working full time and caring for a family, Lenae attended Kaplan University where she studied Criminal Justice and Political Science. Several years later she returned to the University of Phoenix where she obtained a Network Security certification.
Lenae was born and raised in rural southwestern Pennsylvania. Having lived in a small rural town her entire life Lenae was looking for an adventure, so in the summer of 2006, Lenae and her boyfriend, Adam, packed up everything they owned and relocated to South Florida. In 2008 they welcomed their first daughter, married in 2014, and welcomed their second daughter in 2015. After 12 years in the sunshine state they decided to relocate to Raleigh, NC in the spring of 2018, as it was a better location to raise their daughters and a little closer to “home” in Pennsylvania.
They also have two dogs, Josie, a Shiba Inu (12) and Kenzie (3), a white German shepherd. Lenae absolutely adores animals and dreams of one day owning a little farm of her own. She also holds a special place in her heart for gnomes and enjoys collecting them.
In her free time, she enjoys putting together 1000+ piece jigsaw puzzles, reading or listening to audio books, and spending time with her family.
