From an early age, I always knew that I wanted to find a career that would allow me to help people and serve my community. Growing up I took an interest in the law that was only strengthened when I took a few law classes in high school. By the time I was ready to graduate from high school, I knew that my passion for the law was only matched by my desire to solve problems. That's why I decided to study criminology at Kansas State University, so I could combine the two in hopes of finding a career that would allow me to work within the confines of the law to help people.
Upon graduating from Kansas State University in 2004, I realized that the best way to help people would be to study to become an attorney so that I could fight for those who may not be able to fight for themselves. I was quickly accepted into Washburn University School of Law where I would spend the next three years studying under some of the brightest minds in the state to further my knowledge and skills as an attorney. By 2007, I was able to graduate with honors and pass the Kansas state bar that same year.
Most of my clients are truly good individuals who have simply made a bad decision. Keeping these individuals out of prison and allowing them to show that one bad decision doesn’t define who they are is very rewarding.
