About Me

I am a Native lawyer whose goal is simply to represent Tribes in the best way possible. I have worked in-house for a tribe, in DC as legislative director for a Native economic development trade association, and in the Federal government. Now in private practice back in Indian Country, I am excited about the opportunity to use my wide experience and knowledge base to work with Tribes as they strive to take tribal governments, economic development and services for our communities to the next level.
