About me

I have worked for over two years for an employment law firm, handling a caseload of wage and hour law class actions. 


Hailing from Wisconsin (via Indiana, Michigan, Texas, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina), I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay, earning my Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Political Science and Social Change and Development. 


I attended Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, concentrating in business and tax law.  During law school, I clerked for the Multnomah County Attorney's Office.  I am admitted to practice in the State and Federal courts of Oregon.


I am now settled in the Pacific Northwest with my husband Steve, dog Fife, and cats Jack and Chloe.  I love being outside, and you will usually find me either working in the garden, or out in the wild backpacking, camping, canoeing or swimming.
