I am a native Portlandian with deep roots in the community. I grew up in Southwest Portland and graduated from Wilson High School. As an undergraduate, I studied philosophy at the University of Puget Sound. During college, I had my first experience performing direct service with vulnerable clients when I volunteered as a crisis counselor at the sexual assault center of Pierce County. After college, I sought out social service jobs and worked with a range of clients, from pregnant teenagers to foster children. In law school, I worked with victims of domestic violence at Lane County Legal Aid. As an attorney at Wyse Kadish LLP, my practice ranged from representing parents and grandparents in family law cases to representing businesses in contract and tort claims.
I bring both my experience as an attorney and my experience performing direct service to a wide range of clients to my work as a professional fiduciary.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wonderful partner Matt, my daughter Piper and my entertaining labradoodle Matzo Ball. I am also an avid hiker, a mediocre but prolific knitter, and a voracious reader.
