I grew up in the Milwaukee area before attending the Savannah College of Art and Design to study Art History. Afterward, I spent time studying early modern Dutch and German art at UW-Madison. I was drawn to law school by the prospect of making a more tangible impact with my work. In my free time, I enjoy working on a variety of creative hobbies, including oil painting, ceramics, and knitting. I also love to spend time with my husband and two miniature dachshunds.
