How I represent clients at Schwabe

I am a passionate and determined lawyer dedicated to helping clients navigate the intricate world of environmental and natural resource law. My focus lies in providing strategic guidance on a variety of issues, including water rights, environmental compliance, and due diligence. In my practice, I help clients, big and small, understand and comply with a range of regulatory frameworks at the local and national levels.

While in law school, I actively participated in the Washington Journal of Social and Environmental Justice as well as the Environmental Law and Policy Clinic. In addition, I served as a legal researcher for a tribal entity in Washington. During my summer, I gained practical experience as a Summer Associate at Schwabe.
