I am a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), the National Organization of Veterans’ Advocates (NOVA), the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary, the Dubuque County Bar Association, and the Iowa State Bar Association.

I am an Iowa native. I was born and raised in Farnhamville, Iowa. I attended the University of Northern Iowa where I graduated magna cum laude and received a Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology with a minor in Chemistry. I received a Juris Doctor degree from Creighton University School of Law. I also received a Certificate of Negotiation and Alternative Dispute Resolution from the Werner Institute.

My husband and I are the proud recipients of the Excellence in Service Award from Iowa Legal Aid. We received this award in recognition of our outstanding service to low-income Iowans and Iowa Legal Aid.
