I was born and raised in Seattle where I attended Seattle University and earned my bachelor’s degrees in Humanities and Criminal Justice with a specialization in Forensic Psychology. I worked for two years before moving to Spokane and attended Gonzaga University School of Law where I received my Juris Doctorate. While attending Gonzaga, I externed with University Legal Assistance, a not-for-profit program, through the General Law Clinic. Here I represented clients in a variety of cases with an emphasis on unemployment benefit claims. For a year and a half I interned for the Criminal Department at Cooney Law Offices, P.S. That position transitioned to practicing Bankruptcy with Cooney. To keep up to date on my true passion, criminal defense, I also handled traffic infractions and represented clients charged with criminal misdemeanors. I remained with Cooney for a little over a year before transitioning to Timothy Nodland & Associates. Here I was a plaintiff's attorney for personal injury cases.
After five years in Spokane, I finally gained an opportunity not only to move back to the beautiful Seattle but also to get back into criminal defense working at Emerald City Law Group. I primarily focused on defending DUIs but handled all other criminal misdemeanors and traffic infractions as well.
I currently reside in Chicago working as a case manager for a multi state personal injury practice at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys.
