I was born and raised in a small copper mining town in Northern Arizona. Before going to law school in South Bend, Indiana, I had never traveled east of New Mexico. I am grateful for the opportunity to have earned my law degree at the
; the best professors taught me and there, I learned the importance of maintaining integrity in the practice of law. I am cognizant of my integrity every day of my life, both personally and professionally.
While at Notre Dame, the travel bug bit me, even if I was only traveling throughout the midwest and eastern U.S. After graduating from Notre Dame, I expanded my horizons and traveled the world during my vacation time -- mostly alone. While "jet setting," I encountered amazing people, experiences AND food (one of my favorite things). Because of my past travel, I have learned to appreciate diversity in cultures as a whole and within individuals. My collective travel and work experiences have taught me that every person, even the accused murderer, has a story to tell.
If we listen to people, we learn.
If we learn, often, we can help.
That is our purpose on this planet.
That is MY purpose on this planet.
How can I help you?
