I learned the expectations of appellate courts for briefing and oral advocacy while clerking for Chief Justice Durrant of the Utah Supreme Court and Judge Ebel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. I also assisted Judge Ebel with his work sitting by designation in the district court, including jury trials, which gave me insight into how trial strategies impact appeals.

After my clerkships, I honed my writing and speaking skills during a fellowship at the Brigham Young University law school, where I taught Torts and Employment Law and studied legal issues in the field of employment law. I bring a detail-oriented, problem-solving approach to my work.
