What are you most looking forward to in your role as a YLS Council member? I am most looking forward to getting to know other young lawyers in my district. There are not many of us in District 1, so I would love to develop a strong network. I also am looking forward to the opportunity to meet and work with all other YLS council members. 

What do you want other young lawyers to learn about the YLS or The Missouri Bar? I want them to learn YLS and The Missouri Bar is a rich source of mentorship they can lean into for legal resources and advice.  

What is your favorite way to spend a day off? My favorite way to spend a day off is with my husband Aaron, our daughter Lillian, and our two dogs named Vic and Rip. We enjoy spending our time outside, especially if it involves water, hiking, or biking.
