My role as a family law attorney means facilitating the closure of one chapter and helping people begin a new one. To navigate the difficult process of going through a divorce, I hope to keep people focused on the future.
At the end of a relationship, it can feel like you aren’t being listened to. As family law attorneys, we hear you and help you move forward. It motivates me that the better I do my job, the better the lives and co-parenting experiences are of my clients.
In law school, my focus on working directly with individuals began through an internship with a non-profit focused on food and housing security for low-income and underrepresented communities in upstate New York.
After law school, I worked at a personal injury law firm in Denver. I fought for people who were injured—helping them navigate an unfair system. I took pride in fighting insurance companies that tend to look at people as a statistic.
That experience solidified my desire to work with and for people, not corporations. My move to family law was driven by a desire to work with people dealing with real-world, relatable problems. In family law cases, similar to personal injury, I often see people focused on
blame, on how life was before, and on why life won’t be the same again. By taking the time to listen, I help clients reposition themselves to their new realities.
Prior to joining the team at DuBois Levias, I found myself more and more impressed by their approach to law. DuBois Levias cares about the health and well-being of their people. They value work-life balance. It’s a place where I can grow and be a valued part of a talented team.
I was raised in Mill Creek, north of Seattle. Before law school, I double majored in history and philosophy at Washington State University. I practiced law in Denver and New York for about eight years before returning to Seattle in 2019.
I love the Pacific Northwest—the water, the mountains, the forests—and am happy to be home. I’m an avid hiker, backpacker, kayaker, snowboarder, and golfer. My time outside of work is spent with family, friends, and my 14-year old pup, Dylan.
