I bring a solutions-oriented approach to the practice of natural resources and environmental law. My practice involves advising clients in natural resource industries, including water suppliers, forest products companies, agribusinesses, and manufacturers. I focus on the needs of those industries and advise my clients on water rights, real property transactions in the forest products and agricultural industries, and local, state, and federal regulations that affect the storage, transportation, disposal, and cleanup of solid and hazardous wastes.
I grew up working on my family’s farm and feedlot in eastern Oregon. That real-world work experience shapes my understanding of the challenges clients face and my practical approach to problem solving. I recognize that not every issue requires a complex legal solution, and this allows me to identify more straightforward, cost-effective solutions for my clients.
I discovered my passion for natural resources and environmental law and policy on the farm and at Oregon State University. This passion led me to Georgetown Law where I began developing the foundation for my current legal practice.
Before starting my legal career, I served as a state officer for the Oregon Future Farmers of America (FFA) Association, and I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Oregon FFA Foundation. In this role, I build financial support for the Oregon FFA Association and advocate for agriculture, students, and rural communities.
