More About Me

I started my undergraduate education at Iowa Western Community College, where I played football during my time in Council Bluffs. I then transferred to the University of Iowa where I graduated in 2019 with a degree in Political Science and International Relations. I then attended Drake University Law School, where I graduated in 2022, with Highest Honors. Upon graduation, I earned membership to the Order of the Coif and was then admitted to the Iowa Bar. 

While at Drake University Law School, I was the Online Editor of the Drake Law Review and a Legal Research and Writing Teaching Assistant. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, hunting, fishing, and watching the Iowa Hawkeyes.
