Having a lifelong interest in law, Karissa completed a B.A. at the University of Pittsburgh in Political Science and English Writing in 2014, and moved on to obtain a Juris Doctor degree at Pittsburgh’s Duquesne University School of Law in 2018. While in a civil rights clinic at Duquesne University, she helped to organize and participate in a large scale expungement and pardon workshop for individuals in Allegheny County. Karissa discovered while in law school that personal injury law was her passion, and started working for a Pittsburgh-area civil law firm during her first year of study. Having lived with her mother in Pennsylvania from childhood, Karissa was inspired to settle down in Pittsburgh to pursue her dream career as an attorney.

Karissa has a deep understanding of how her practice can benefit the people of Pennsylvania.

Volunteering with election protection is one way Karissa stays connected to her community.
