After completing her bachelor degree in finance, Ms. Gifford’s grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Without proper financial or estate planning, Ms. Gifford’s family was forced to spend down all of her grandmother’s assets until she eventually qualified for state assistance. This prompted Ms. Gifford to start a career in financial planning where she could help families preserve and protect their wealth from unforeseen circumstances. Ms. Gifford worked as a financial advisor for four years during which she obtained multiple licenses including her life/health insurance license, Series 6 and 63 securities licenses, real estate license, and mortgage license. While working in financial planning, Ms. Gifford was able to work with CPAs and estate planning attorneys to build comprehensive plans for clients. During those interactions, Ms. Gifford developed a passion for estate planning to ensure asset protection while developing maximum tax efficiencies for the distribution of wealth to heirs and charities. It was this passion that prompted Ms. Gifford to attend law school and focus her education in tax and estate planning courses.


 


In 2012, Ms. Gifford received her Juris Doctor degree from the William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV, where she graduated cum laude.


 


While attending law school, Ms. Gifford completed externships with the Honorable Elissa Cadish, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the Clark County School District. Additionally, Ms. Gifford participated in the National Sports Law Moot Court Competition as a member of the Society of Advocates. She also participated in the William S. Boyd School of Law’s legal clinic providing legal services to children and parents in need of assistance dealing with family related legal matters.
