I grew up in southeastern South Dakota and began my undergraduate studies as a music major playing alto saxophone at the University of South Dakota. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration. I always knew that I wanted to continue my education beyond undergraduate studies and decided to attend law school at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. After earning my law degree, I worked primarily as a criminal defense attorney for 18 years before joining Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs.
I practice law because I want to make a difference in people’s lives. Being a lawyer allows me the honor of helping individuals achieve the justice they deserve. I love working with a great team of people and getting great results for clients.
Favorite Book My favorite book is a tie between “Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff” by Christopher Moore and “Power of the Dog” by Don Winslow.
When you’re not working… I am spending time with my dogs and husband, gardening, exercising or cooking a new recipe from one of my numerous daily foodie emails.
