I was born and raised in Indiana but have called San Diego home since moving here to attend law school. Prior to attending law school, I served eight years in the military as an active duty member of the U.S. Coast Guard. I graduated with high honors from Davenport University with a Bachelor of Business Administration. I gained a passion for family law while working at a veteran’s legal assistance clinic during law school. A majority of the cases I handled at the veteran’s legal assistance clinic were family law matters. I enjoyed helping clients work through legal issues that were often emotionally difficult. I am divorced and understand that family law issues can be emotionally and financially draining. As a military veteran, I am very passionate about assisting the military members and veterans in our community. I am also very passionate about providing assistance to members of our community that cannot afford legal representation.
