I am originally from the Washington, DC area, where small businesses are central to the economy and several inspiring entrepreneurs sparked my passion for business. This passion has shaped my work experience as well as my studies, which have focused on corporate and startup law.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Finance from Florida State University in 2013, and then worked in government technology contracting in Washington, DC before moving to California. I graduated from Pepperdine University School of Law in 2018 with a certificate from the Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law.
During law school, I was a Law Clerk at Verhagen Bennett LLP, I spent a summer working for a seed-stage tech startup, and I spent two years working for a solo practitioner in Beverly Hills specializing in corporate law, transactional law, and immigration law. In addition, I performed an independent study about the legal implications of businesses using blockchain technology and smart contracts for transactions.
I am now an Of Counsel Attorney at Verhagen Bennett LLP, where the partners share my love for helping entrepreneurs bring their dreams to life. I have been very fortunate to work with people like Dallas and David, who have provided me with so many opportunities to learn how to help companies of all sizes to meet their goals while protecting their interests.
