Law School Interests: Currently, I am considering the Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution emphasis since I have a passion for Criminal Law. Specifically, I would like to become a private criminal defense attorney. For fun, I am presently the Vice President of the Health and Fitness Club, and I was one of the founding members of “Yoga Fridays” at the law building.


I am a nature-lover who is always looking for a way to live more naturally and sustainably on a budget. Some of my hobbies include bread-baking, making my own beauty products, and various crafts. I love to be outdoors whether it is working on my organic garden, going for a hike, or skiing on the slopes.

Before going to law school, I worked in the legal field for ten years. I have worked as a process server, an administrative assistant for a court reporting firm, and was a paralegal for seven years for a criminal defense attorney.

After law school, I hope to continue my work in the area of criminal defense. Specifically, I have a passion for helping indigent clients obtain quality representation. In addition to working in criminal law, I also hope to get involved in some local environmental causes through non-profit work.

Please contact me with any questions you may have about law school, life in Moscow, or anything else you are curious about – I am more than happy to help you.
