I am a graduate of Lewis and Clark Law School and have been with the Vern McCray Law Firm since the fall of 2019. Prior to, during and after law school, I have dedicated myself to public interest work, varying from police brutality and environmental activism to Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) issues to public defense in dependency cases. During law school, I worked for multiple non-profits and firms, specifically those geared toward ICWA issues, including DNA People's Legal Services, Haglund Kelley LLP, and the National Indian Child Welfare Association. This culminated into one of my proudest accomplishments, that being published in the Seattle University American Indian Law Journal for my analysis and critique of the 2013 Re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act. I then expanded my focus in family law while working at the Valentine Law Office in Grays Harbor County doing public defense for parents in dependency and termination cases. Now, I am focusing on an even broader range of family and criminal matters in the Clark County area at the Vern McCray Law Firm.
