When did you start practicing law as a licensed attorney?
September of 2020
What drew you to the idea of practicing law?
When I first decided I wanted to become a lawyer (at 12 years old), I was drawn to the excitement and prestige of the legal profession. Deeply fascinated by politics, I thought becoming a lawyer would transform me into a highly qualified political candidate. As my political aspirations eventually subsided, my ambitions of becoming a lawyer grew stronger. By the time I was applying for law school, I was passionate about becoming a dynamic advocate and welcomed the rigor of mastering the intricacies of business operations and transactions. Although I am not the Governor of Washington State, I think my 12-year-old self would still be proud.
What do you like about your work?
I enjoy diving deep into new areas of the law, crafting innovative solutions to complex problems, and developing meaningful relationships with my clients.
What drives you professionally?
I feel the most invigorated when I have wrestled with a problem and finally come up with “that” idea. Whether it's a new approach, lens, or interpretation—I love how it feels to discover something previously unseen and run with it.
