I am a proud Iowa lawyer.

 

I got a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) thinking I would work in enterprise risk management for companies. I quickly learned that I'm a natural advocate for the individual. I became a small business owner so that I can pursue cases that make me want to go to war.
 

I am fascinated by the intricacies of institutional decision-making and how it can cause harm. It's my job to analyze the behaviors of the people that hurt you, to find the decision-making flaws that prove discrimination, and to make them pay for hurting you.

I enjoy developing relationships with my clients and working to earn their trust. I am committed to trauma-informed representation of Iowa's workers and students. 

It takes courage to pursue justice. I am ready to listen, equipped to understand, and prepared to represent you.

 

Don’t let them get away with it. You deserve better, and I can help.
