I have been living in the Reno/Sparks area since I was five years old.  I grew up in Sparks, where I attended both elementary and middle school.  I have played sports all of my life, mostly focusing on softball and basketball.  Every so often I'll play slow pitch softball on a tournament team with my sister and friends.  I attended Bishop Manogue High School and received the Governor Guinn Millenium Scholarship.  I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History.  After graduating from UNR, I attended law school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Boyd School of Law.
  
 It has always been important to me to give back to the different communities that I have been a part of.  Once I graduated law school, I became an Americorps Legal Fellow and worked at Nevada Legal Services in Las Vegas for a year.  While working at Nevada Legal Services, I received a Compassionate Las Vegas Honors award from Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and the Las Vegas City Council.  After my time as an Americorps Fellow was up, I returned to Reno as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Egan Walker.  When I began my time with Judge Walker, he was a Judge in the Second Judicial District Family Court.  I then followed him to the General Jurisdiction of the Second Judicial District when he was appointed to Department 7 by Governor Brian Sandoval.

I decided early on that I wanted to become a lawyer so that I would have the ability to help people and give back to the community that has given me so much.  Since law school, I knew practicing family law would give me the ability to fulfill this need.  When I learned that Marilyn York was hiring, I jumped at the chance to apply as I had always admired her as an attorney and a person, and was eager to join her team of intelligent, hard-working and compassionate attorneys.
 
Working in a high-end, fast-paced family law firm keeps me active and engaged with clients every day.  Family law is uniquely time sensitive, emotional and hyperactive with never a dull day.  We Associates work on many family law cases each day and feel higher highs and lower lows than most other types of attorneys.  How can there be any higher job satisfaction than saving children from harmful environments and often times getting their fathers back into their lives?  Or when we help clients get past difficult times and see them bloom again?  My legal teammates and I are passionate about our work and we love doing it - I feel as though I'm back on a high level sports team!
