Originally from Florida, Koral attended the University of Florida before trading in the sunshine state for the mountains. Koral received her law degree from Washington & Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Virginia where she met her husband, Ferrell. After practicing in Los Angeles, Koral and her husband are excited to be back in the Blue Ridge and are happy to call Western North Carolina home. In her free time, Koral enjoys hiking, running, reading a wide variety of books, and spending time with her husband — all while trying to keep up with their Border Collie, Indiana Jones.
