I grew up in Boulder, Colorado where I attended high school and received my undergraduate degree in philosophy. During law school I became a board member of the Transportation Law Journal, a research assistant for a law professor, and a member of the DU Mediation Clinic where I received certification as a professionally trained mediator. I completed a number of internships which included working at the Arapahoe District Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Denver District Court where I interned for Judge Michael A. Martinez. Before starting my own practice, I worked as a law clerk/paralegal for Kennedy, Childs, & Fogg where I assisted in medical malpractice defense litigation. Additionally, I worked as a contract attorney for a number of attorneys on a variety of different projects which included research for workers’ compensation defense cases, discovery assistance for a large legal malpractice defense case, and preparation of a continuing legal education lecture on effective use of expert testimony in family law.
I enjoy playing tennis, painting, playing with my labradoodle "Dudley," and hiking.
