Raised primarily in the suburbs of Washington D.C., I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Government and International Politics from George Mason University. Upon graduation, I enlisted in the United States Air Force, as a budget analyst I earned various military awards and accolades for supporting military campaigns and missions. I continue to serve in the Air Force in the reserve corps as a legal professional.

During law school, I externed at the U.S. Attorney’s Office and New Mexico Environment Department, was on the Frederick Douglass Moot Court team, was the Assistant Moot Court Director for the National Black Law Students Association, and earned a Certificate in Natural Resources and Environmental Law.

Prior to joining Butt Thornton & Baehr PC, I practiced insurance defense and subrogation negligence cases at a civil litigation firm in Albuquerque.
