Born in California, I have moved around a bit before settling in Nevada. In 1994, I graduated college in Missouri and soon after became a Probation and Parole Officer. While in this role, I would often need to attend court. I enjoyed watching the lawyers in the courtroom and admired them greatly. After a few years, I applied to law school and was admitted at the University of North Dakota. In 2003, I served a two year clerkship with the Hon. Michael Kraker in Minnesota. Soon after, I started my own family law practice. I have been practicing family law for approximately nine years. I am licensed to practice in Minnesota, North Dakota and Nevada.
