My legal career began in Wallace at the age of 16, where I had the opportunity to work for Hollis J. Anderson as a legal assistant. After graduating from Wallace High School, I pursued my dreams obtaining my Doctorate in Law from the University of Idaho. In 2007, I returned to this beautiful city tucked in between mountains, where I established my own law practice and began working as a Prosecuting Attorney for Shoshone County. In 2012, I was blessed with the ability to serve as the elected Prosecuting Attorney for Shoshone County, and soon thereafter received the Idaho Women Lawyers Rising Star Award.
In my free time, I enjoy camping, crafting, and spending time with those I care about. I am passionate about investing in the future of the Silver Valley through volunteerism and activities that promote positive experiences for the youth of our community.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. - Eleanor Roosevelt

Growing up in rural north Idaho, I learned very early in life how difficult it can be for rural communities to obtain professional services. Though law school took me away from my mountain roots temporarily while I pursued the studies needed to obtain a Doctorate in Law, I am excited to be able to bring that education back to north Idaho.
In my free time, I enjoy fly-fishing in high mountain streams, hunting in the backcountry with my black lab, and officiating collegiate basketball. Re-investing in the youth of our society is the key to a sustainable future and volunteering in our communities is just one of the ways I believe we can use the gifts that God gives us to make this world a better place.
