About me

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, with a minor in Law, Societies, and Justice, from the University of Washington.  I then pursued my legal education at the Seattle University School of Law.

During law school, I received numerous accolades and honors.  I was a Presidential Law scholar, a member of the Moot Court Board, and an Associate Editor on the Seattle University Law Review.  I graduated cum laude.

In addition to my studies, I worked as a research assistant for Professor Gregory Silverman, a summer clerk in the Yakima County Prosecutor’s Office, and a legal intern at the law firm of Marler Clark.

I have been published multiple times, including an article entitled Product Liability and Food in Washington State: What Constitutes Manufacturing?, published in the the Seattle University Law Review.  Additionally, I have engaged in advocacy work, helping to author a 2009 petition to the USDA that resulted in a change to federal law, enacting stricter safety standards for ground beef production.

I am currently run and manage ABF Law Firm.
