I arrived in Mora, New Mexico in 2014 and made my way to Albuquerque as a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I travelled the entire state looking for endangered fish and fell in love with New Mexico’s biodiversity. I also fell for the diversity of cultures, people, and traditions here.
The people of this state inspired me to go to law school at UNM and to stay here afterwards. I respected the strength, integrity, and tenacity of the people I worked with, no matter what corner of the state I was in. I felt called to transition from protecting New Mexico’s endangered species to protecting its people. Now I strive to represent clients with the same strength, integrity, and tenacity that initially inspired my career change.
Through law school I stayed connected to my biology roots through extracurriculars like the Environmental Law Society and Natural Resource Journal, while taking a course load heavily focused on civil litigation.
When I’m not working, I’m out enjoying New Mexico’s public lands with my family.
