More About Me
I grew up in Iowa, but I attended college in New York City at Columbia University. While there, I played Division I basketball and performed independent research as part of the Honors Psychology Program. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology in 2010.
After college, I gained experience in the legal field, first, as a secretary at a large international law firm and then as a paralegal at a boutique bankruptcy firm. I also worked as a judicial intern at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York the summer before attending New York University School of Law. At law school, I earned the NYU Pollack Center for Law & Business SEED Award for Original Research for my work analyzing SEC enforcement actions. After receiving my J.D. in 2017, I began working as an associate at a large international law firm in NYC.
While living in New York, my heart always remained in Iowa. I decided to return home to continue to establish my legal practice because I am passionate about Iowa and its potential. I am admitted to practice law in the State of Iowa and am a member of the Polk County Bar, Iowa State Bar and American Bar Associations and a member of the Polk County Women Attorneys. I am also admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey, and a member of the New York City Bar Association.
