I grew up in the Great Lakes region and have
lived in various parts of the country until
I settled down in New Mexico in 2002. In 1991,
I received my bachelor’s degree in Political
Science from The University of Michigan in
Ann Arbor. After graduation, I spent two years
in Japan, where I studied Japanese language,
history, and culture while working for
Biwako-Kisen. In 1998, I graduated magna cum
laude from Tulane University School of Law,
receiving the distinction of Order of the Coif
and the Lemle Kelleher award for the top
graduate in the Admiralty Program. While in
law school, I served on the Maritime Law Journal
and was on the Appellate Law Clinic. After
graduation, I was admitted to the Alaska State
Bar, and practiced in general insurance defense
and special education law before relocating to
New Mexico. I worked for West Publishing Company
for many years prior to becoming licensed in New
Mexico in 2014. I am admitted to the New Mexico
state courts, the New Mexico Federal District
Court and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
When not practicing law, I enjoy hiking and
camping in many of the beautiful mountain ranges
in our state, spending time with my children, and
helping others make positive changes in their lives.
