I’ve been an active (and humbly accomplished) lawyer for more than 25 years. After graduating from the University of Iowa, where I served as a student government leader, I received my law degree (summa cum laude) from Southern Illinois University.
After law school, I clerked for the Iowa Court of Appeals before joining the Des Moines firm of Bradshaw, Fowler, Proctor and Fairgrave, P.C.
At the firm, I became a partner and gained a reputation for skilled and conscientious litigation in all areas of law – with a focus on employment law.
In 2013, I left litigation to pursue my passion for philanthropy. As Vice President of Gift Planning Strategies for the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, I had the privilege of helping donors plan and achieve their charitable goals.
In 2014, I received the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy designation from The American College of Financial Services.
I’m proud to serve my community and my profession in a variety of ways – as a member of boards and commissions and as a mentor and hands-on volunteer. Additionally, I continue to manage a donor-advised fund for the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines.
