I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 2010, I graduated cum laude from the University of New Mexico with my B.A. in Political Science. Throughout high school and college, I managed a favorite local restaurant—Dion’s Pizza. I graduated from the Pennsylvania State University, Dickinson School of Law in 2014 as a member of the Woolsack Honor Society. In law school, I completed an externship for the Honorable James O. Browning of the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico and participated in the Indigent Criminal Justice Clinic with the Centre County Public Defender’s Office. Prior to joining Butt Thornton & Baehr PC, I served as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of Albuquerque, defending civil lawsuits in both federal and state courts at the district and appellate levels. In my free time, I have recently taken up running for fun and enjoy cheering on the Lobos with my family.
