Blake spent parts of his childhood in Texas and Oklahoma but has lived most of his life in Arkansas. He attended Henderson State University where he earned his bachelor’s degree in political science. He originally attended to pursue a nursing degree, but soon realized his passion was political science and the law. Blake has past experience as a paralegal in the following practice areas: Estate Planning, Probate, Trust Administration, and Real Estate. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Emily, and their mini schnauzer/poodle mix dog named Penny. Blake is also a bit of a “sneakerhead” and has a vast collection of shoes. He has traveled to France (where he and his wife were married), the Netherlands, Belgium, and Mexico, and hopes to add to that list.
