I grew up in Overland Park, Kansas. I first journeyed to Albuquerque on a swimming scholarship for the University of New Mexico and immediately fell in love with the state. I competed for the Lobos in the Mountain West Conference all four years of my undergraduate career.

While studying as an undergraduate I was named a UNM Nominee for the Rhodes Scholarship in 2011. I graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2015. While in law school I was a member of the New Mexico Law Review as a Student Articles Editor (‘14-‘15) and received the Dean’s Award for Significant Contribution to the Law School Community.

When I am not practicing law I enjoy hiking, cooking, and spending time with my family and friends.
