What are you most looking forward to in your role as a YLS Council member?  

I am most looking forward to meeting and working with other young lawyers across the state of Missouri. 

What do you want other young lawyers to learn about the YLS or The Missouri Bar?

I want other young lawyers to learn more about the opportunities that YLS offers for CLE programs and social networking events to help young lawyers grow in our profession. 

Who is your personal hero?  

My personal hero is Dolly Parton—not only because she is fabulous, but also because she has a heart of gold. Since 1995, she has donated more than 100 million books to children around the world. In 2016, after wildfires caused catastrophic damage in east Tennessee, she helped raise millions of dollars for families affected by the destruction. Dolly is truly a legend!
