About Me

I am currently the city prosecutor in Junction City, Kansas.


I am admitted to the Kansas Bar (2010); the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas (2010); and the Missouri Bar (2009) (inactive-2010). I am also a member of the Kansas Bar Association, Riley County Bar Association and the Geary County Bar Association.


I am a 2009 magna cum laude graduate from Valparaiso University School of Law and a 2006 summa cum laude graduate from Kansas Wesleyan University with a dual degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. While at Valparaiso University I served as an associate editor for the Valparaiso University Law Review and my article, “Protecting the Playgrounds of the Twenty-First Century: Analyzing Computer & Internet Restrictions for Internet Sex Offenders,” was published in the spring of 2009.


Before joining the City, I worked as a criminal defense attorney.  Through law school, I worked as a legal extern for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, Chicago Field Division, and the Porter County Prosecutor’s Office. Additionally, I clerked for Hoeppner, Wagner, and Evans, Valparaiso, Indiana.
