Prior to law school, I was an entrepreneur. With a partner, and some seed money from an entrepreneurship competition, I started and grew a successful business. I experienced firsthand the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship. Now, as an attorney, I enjoy working with businesses to help them find success. My experience in representing businesses range from incorporations, contract negotiation, employment issues, transactional work, debt negotiation, business purchases and sales, to advising on business strategies and decisions.

During law school, I also attained a Master's of Arts in environment and natural resources (ENR). I think that my background in business and ENR give me meaningful insight into the oil and gas industry which benefits my oil and gas clients. My experience in the oil and gas arena has consisted mostly of landowner representation, from negotiation and enforcement of surface use agreements and mineral leases and title work, to auditing damage and royalty payments. I believe that I am able to offer meaningful perspective and contract solutions to landowners on issues which range far beyond money and liability.

I also practice in a variety of other areas of the law as most Wyoming attorneys do including estate planning, real estate, and debt collection. I pride myself on being a very pragmatic attorney, endeavoring to find solutions to my clients' problems in the most efficient manner possible.
