I was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. Throughout my youth I enjoyed playing soccer, baseball, football, and basketball, as well as run track.
I graduated from the University of Florida in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. Go Gators! My main focus of study was American and European History from World War I through World War II, as well as U.S. Constitution history. Thereafter, I graduated from Marquette University Law School in 2004. While attending Marquette, I served on the Sports Law Review and earned a Certificate in Sports Law from the National Sports Law Institute. The main focus of legal studies was the interplay between broadcasting rights and antitrust laws.
I have lived and worked in Washington, D.C. since 2004. As of 2008, I have served as an Associate Counsel/Counsel at the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
In 2015, I married my husband. We have lived in the Columbia Heights neighborhood since 2012 with our Chocolate Lab, Tucker.
When I am not cheering on the Orange and Blue or attending a D.C. United match, I am at my local CrossFit gym or hiking through Rock Creek Park.
