In her own words: For more than 12 years, I have helped intellectual property owners protect their brands across the globe. I have practiced with an Omaha-based law firm for almost a decade and, prior to that, I practiced with a Des Moines firm for a couple of years after law school. After graduating from Iowa State, I worked in public relations for a year before starting law school at University of Iowa’s College of Law (and graduated in 2002). I live in Ankeny with my husband (Civ. Eng. ’98) and three young daughters.
