During my final year of law school, I served as Copy Editor of the South Dakota Law Review. I graduated from law school as a member of the Thomas Sterling Honor Society. After completing law school, I completed a one-year clerkship with the Sixth Judicial Circuit of South Dakota in Pierre. Since then, I have engaged in private practice, focusing almost exclusively on civil litigation.
On a personal note, when I lived and practiced law in Belle Fourche, South Dakota, I was a member of the Belle Fourche Volunteer Fire Department for nearly a decade.
