After working in Europe for three years, I recently moved to New York where I'm continuing my practice with a major firm as an attorney in white collar defense and investigations. I work with corporations and global financial institutions in the United States and Europe on investigations and compliance matters. [Glad to share more details on life and work].

I got married to my husband in 2015, and we now have 2 year old twin boys, Dawson and Declan! Being a mother has been the most rewarding and wonderful experience of my life. I am also very excited that I will be starting dental school this summer at Roseman in South Jordan, Utah. I feel like the education I received at BYUH has prepared me well for this next step in my life! I feel blessed to have served in Young Women’s as the Laurel advisor, as well as being a teacher in Sunday School. The gospel has, and continues, to bring immense blessings in to my life. I will forever be thankful for the beautiful islands of Hawaii and for all that I was able to experience and learn while there.

I got a job offer to come work for BYU Hawaii in 2019 for the ITO Client Services Department. It's a blessing to be back since I graduated and love my job! I am serving as a temple prep instructor in my ward and I love this calling because I get to help those who are preparing to enter and make sacred covenants in the Temple. I love living in Hawaii. I ran my first Half-Marathon last year and it was a great experience! Looking forward to the new adventures I will have this year.
