Professional Experience and Background
Originally from the Bay Area, I attended Pacific University for its criminal justice program. During my time at Pacific University, I interned at the Washington County Juvenile Department and Metropolitan Public Defender’s Office. My senior thesis focused on adults-in-custody’s personal experiences and opinions on “prison labor,” and the Oregon Department of Corrections later implemented several of my suggestions for improvement.
After graduating summa cum laude from Pacific University, I attended the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College. Throughout my second year in law school, I interned at the Oregon Innocence Project helping the wrongfully convicted both in and out of custody.
In 2021, I began interning at Harris, Velázquez, Gibbens. Focusing much of my time on the early case resolution (ECR) docket, I gained countless hours of courtroom experience and client interaction while managing a caseload of my own.
After graduating from law school in the top 10% of my class and successfully passing the Oregon State Bar Exam, I was thrilled to continue my career at Harris, Velázquez, Gibbens as an Associate Attorney. I look forward to continuing to represent individuals with a compassionate and collaborative approach and working towards the best outcome in each unique case.

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, visiting home, and cooking. I enjoy spending time outdoors, including hiking and riding dirtbikes and motorcycles. I am a fan of the many Bay Area sports teams, particularly the San Jose Sharks.
