BIO:

I first knew I wanted to be a criminal defense attorney as a sophomore at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. I had been interested in criminal law and began working as a victim's advocate at the Washington County District Attorney's Office in Hillsboro, Oregon. Seeing firsthand the thought process and tactics of criminal prosecution introduced me to how radically unfair the criminal justice system can be.

I decided to pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney. I wanted to dedicate myself to defending people's rights and fighting for those accused of crimes.

Throughout law school I worked in both criminal and immigration defense. Immediately after graduation I worked as the Judicial Clerk to Judge Steele in the Clackamas County Circuit Court in Oregon City. I began working with Vancouver Defenders in 2014. Since that time I have represented hundreds of clients in the Clark County Court on a range of cases.
