Hi there! I completed my Juris Doctorate from Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, a T-14 law school in Chicago, Illinois. Prior to that, I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Government & World Affairs, Bachelor of Arts in Music, and minor in Criminology from The University of Tampa and graduated Magna Cum Laude, the top 10% of my class.
I am a solutions-oriented commercial attorney and focus on intellectual property, technology, and data privacy matters. I started off my career as a corporate legal fellow at a high-growth start-up where I counseled 125 business owners on avoiding pitfalls as they navigated from newly-commenced startups to established and successful corporate entities. Specifically, I advised on overall intellectual property brand management, domestic and international expansion, and strategic protection; entity formation; contract drafting and negotiation; corporate governance; and pre-litigation matters. Thereafter, I transitioned in-house serving as corporate counsel to global companies in the media & entertainment as well as healthcare technology spaces. As Corporate Counsel, I worked on technology transactions and advised executives and key stakeholders on effectively managing risk to leverage long-term growth strategies.
I am passionate about learning, mentoring, and helping others succeed in all that they set their mind to. When I am not practicing law, I leverage my background and skill sets in serving as Vice President of a Board of Directors, volunteering in my community, reading personal growth and development books, playing musical instruments, running races, and conquering obstacle courses.
