Prior to entering academia, Professor Page practiced law as a staff attorney in the Department of Protective and Regulatory Services in Texas where she established an 89% win record in the Texas Courts of Appeals and successfully represented her agency before the Supreme Court of Texas.

Professor Page was active in the legal community in Texas and was awarded both an American Bar Association Award and a Texas Young Lawyers Award for the pro bono Family Law pamphlet she created. She hosted quarterly on Austin Young Lawyer’s Association’s “Ask an Attorney” television show, spoke at conferences, and published papers on Child Protection Law, one of which has been cited by the El Paso Court of Appeals.
