I grew up in Orlando, Florida. At the age of 12, I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to attend high school. I attended one year of college at the University of New Mexico but moved back to Florida in 1998. I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2002. From 2003 to 2006 I attended law school in Michigan. In 2006, I graduated from Thomas M. Cooley School of Law in Lansing.
From September 2006 to September 2007, I was a law-clerk for the Honorable Larry E. McKeeman of the Snohomish County Superior Court. I joined the firm of Tuohy & Minor in October 2007. Shortly thereafter, Deane Minor and Kara Kruse joined law firms and created Tuohy Minor Kruse PLLC. In 2014, I became partner. My practice focuses on Family Law, Guardianships, Probate, and Estate Planning.
