Jayna was born in Washington State but has lived in Indiana, New York, and now Colorado. Colorado is her favorite place she has lived.
Growing up, Jayna always knew she wanted a career in law and getting her Paralegal degree was her first step. Jayna obtained her Paralegal degree from Finger Lakes Community College in 2016. Jayna began her legal career as a Real Estate Paralegal in New York where she worked for two and a half years. Jayna’s experience with complying with court orders, assisting attorneys, identifying clients’ needs, and managing all deadlines laid the groundwork for her to become an immediate asset at FWI legal. When she moved to Colorado, she worked for a local firm where she gained experience in family law and personal injury law, before joining FWI Legal. She was responsible for the administrative components of the family law process including maintaining open and clear lines of communication to keep clients informed, providing transparency and clarity in billing and financial components, and organizing all case files for quick and accurate reference. These responsibilities have already benefited her at FWI Legal by allowing her to jump right in and make the transition to her new role seamless.
Jayna’s favorite part of working with FWI legal is working closely with workers’ compensation clients to help reduce the complex and complicated legal process into manageable steps. She takes pride in addressing her clients’ fears and uncertainties and leaving them with a confident understanding of their situation and how FWI legal can serve their needs.
In her free time, Jayna likes to play video games and board games. When the weather is nice, she also likes to play disc golf, hike and take her dog Riley to the dog park.
