In 2012, the common goal of helping people with their personal legal needs brought me together with my law partner Tracy Hightower-Henne to form Hightower Reff Law.
A North Dakota native, I earned my Juris Doctorate degree from Creighton University School of Law in 2001, after graduating in 1997 from Creighton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy. During my time at Creighton, I was captain of the women's rowing team and a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority.
Staying active in the legal community is important to me. I am a member of the Nebraska Women's Bar Association, Chair of the Nebraska State Bar Association's Juvenile Law Section, and is a former member of the Nebraska Bar Leadership Academy.
In 2015, I was honored to be published in the Nebraska Lawyer Magazine when I wrote about how the law led me to parenthood; Living at a Crossroads: My Experience as a Juvenile Court Attorney and Foster Parent, Nebraska Lawyer Magazine, September/October 2015.
