About Me

I was born in the mountains outside of Wolf Creek in rural Josephine County.  I grew up in Ashland and am a proud graduate of Ashland Middle School and Ashland High School.  


 


I left the Rogue Valley for college and law school at the University of Oregon.  After law school, I worked as a judicial law clerk at the Oregon Court of Appeals for the Honorable Ellen Rosenblum, who is now the Attorney General for the State of Oregon.  I then took a job at the state public defender's office, where I represented hundreds of criminal defendants and further sharpened my legal skills.  I loved my job, but I always missed Southern Oregon.  I am proud to offer excellent representation in all of Oregon, with offices in Ashland and Portland.
