What have you been up to since you graduated?
After graduating, I moved back home to Reno and spent the first-year clerking in the First Judicial District Court for Judge James E. Wilson Jr. I have since been admitted to practice in both Nevada and California. This last September, I began practicing civil law in the Carson City/Reno area for Allison MacKenzie Ltd. I also have joined the young lawyers committee for Nevada Justice Association and began volunteering for the Northern Nevada Food Bank.
What do you enjoy in your off hours?
In my off hours I enjoy spending time with my family, boyfriend, and friends. Now that there is an end in sight regarding the pandemic, my family and I are getting back to our weekly Sunday night dinners. Also, a group of my friends and I have started doing our Wednesday trivia nights again. I am really looking forward to having a summer this year because I love playing softball or spending my weekends up at Lake Tahoe on a paddle board.
If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg aka The Notorious RBG. Aside from my grandpa, Justice Ginsburg is the closest thing I have to a superhero. In fact, I have an action figure of her in my office—a gift for passing the bar from fellow Boyd Alum, Elva Castañeda. I am so grateful to Justice Ginsburg for all the work she accomplished during her life and the impact she has made on the world.
