At Baylor Law School in Waco, Texas, I developed a passion and excitement for transactional and finance law, which led me to bankruptcy law. This practice area is fascinating to me. Bankruptcy presents a puzzle, with the objective of collecting the different pieces and making them fit perfectly together. While a client’s bankruptcy is a serious proposition, it involves a bit of game theory, with players, a strategy, and a payoff. Due to asymmetric information, all parties are forced to come to the table and show their hands. My job is to achieve the best “hand” for my client. The result is the rebirth of my client – a reemergence from a restricted existence, similar to a cocoon – to a brighter and more prosperous future.
Prior to attending law school, I worked in healthcare. I assisted in improving the lives of cutaneous lupus patients through dermatology research and organizing patient focus groups. I also interviewed patients of modest means in the Río Ceballos mountains of Argentina. I particularly enjoyed listening to patients’ stories and paths. Bankruptcy is the perfect blend of my passion for transactional and finance law, and using compassion and sympathy to help clients create solutions to empower and relieve them of financial distress.
In my free time, I enjoy immersing myself in the music, art, culture, and nature of St. Paul and the Twin Cities. I also enjoy skiing in the winter, as well as playing my violin and tennis.
