About me

In a city that has seen many out-of-state law firms open their doors in Las Vegas, Jolley Urga Woodbury & Little remains one of the last “Vegas born” firms.  I was raised in Las Vegas and I am proud to work and live in such a great community.  


Along with my law degree, I earned a Master’s of Business Administration which allows me to counsel my clients not only as to the legal requirements of starting and owning a business, but the intricacies of running a successful enterprise. I believe strongly in treating clients with the utmost care and respect and make it a priority to be responsive to their concerns and needs.


Outside of my career, I also enjoy spending time with my family. I also enjoy yoga and outdoor activities such as snowboarding, camping and hiking.
