BIO

Since graduating from Washington University School of Law in 2015, I have concentrated my practice in the areas of Family Law, Probate, Orders of Protection, Adoption and Estate Planning. I am a certified Guardian ad Litem in the State of Missouri. I am also a trained Family Law Mediator and an Adjunct Professor at Washington University School of Law.

While at Washington University, I was active in student government as a member of the Student Bar Association for three years and the executive board for two years. I was a member of the executive boards of the Student Law Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and the Global Studies Law Review, and was President of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, one of the largest student groups on campus.

I am proud to call St. Louis home and am committed to serving my community. In 2017, I launched the Young Friends of Project, Inc, and currently serve as the President of the Young Friends board.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and concerts, and spending time with my rescue dog.

I was born in Madison, Wisconsin, grew up in Chesterfield, Missouri, and now live in the City of St. Louis.
