I began practicing law in Los Angeles, California in June 2010 and became the first associate to join Clyde & Co's Newport Beach office in December 2014. Prior to Clyde & Co, I specialized in environmental and energy litigation in both state and federal matters across the United States.
As I have progressed in seniority, Clyde & Co continues to demonstrate its commitment to ambitious ideas and the professional development of its lawyers.

In addition to environmental and energy litigation, I have advised in regards to product liability, property damage, personal injury, and corporate dispute incidents.

Substantively, joining Clyde & Co meant adding maritime law as a new sector of my practice.  Adding new sectors of law is always a challenge, however, due in large part to a P&I Club's residential training course and Clyde's broad industry involvement, I received in-depth training and exposure to maritime insurance issues regarding P&I Clubs, marine underwriting and brokering, loss prevention, personnel and crew claims, cargo claims, the shipper correspondents networks, marine surveyors, and the perpetual evolution of global shipping companies and industry challenges.  Clyde & Co has consistently provided me with knowledge, skills, and training to meet clients' needs across the globe. 

Throughout my initial discussions with Clyde & Co, the Firm convinced me that it was not only committed to my technical development, but was also committed to my professional achievements and advancements.  As I have progressed in seniority, Clyde & Co continues to demonstrate its commitment to ambitious ideas and the professional development of its lawyers.

I am personally involved in a local network of women lawyers because I believe the practice of law presents women with a series of unique challenges throughout their careers.  I have recently become a member of Clyde & Co's Diversity and Inclusion committee and I am able to relay those challenges and perspectives to other groups of individuals within the firm.  This is exciting because Clyde & Co's commitment to diversity and inclusion creates a powerful environment that will enhance our teams.

In addition to working with great and collaborative teams, Clyde & Co has provided me the opportunity to participate in matters in the US, UK, Greece, South Korea, Indonesia and Australia.
