I have dedicated my career to representing the legal rights of injured individuals, and it is a privilege to have the opportunity each day to pursue justice on behalf of good people who are encountering difficult circumstances.

I am a native of St. Louis, Missouri, where I grew up with the goal of becoming a lawyer. I attended college at Webster University in St. Louis where I earned a B.A. in English, cum laude, and was a four-year member of the women's soccer team. Law school led me to Kansas City, where I quickly developed a sincere appreciation for the city's friendly atmosphere and progressive feel. I earned my J.D. from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law in 2011, where I served as the Articles & Symposia Editor of the UMKC Law Review.

For the past several years, I have represented individuals in employment and personal injury matters in Kansas City and St. Louis. There are many aspects of practicing law that I love, but nothing feels more satisfying than witnessing a client's sincere gratitude upon achieving justice on his or her behalf.
