Background and other interests
I grew up in the Seattle area, in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I also spent six years living in Germany, and enjoy visiting Berlin as often as I can. In 2011 I moved to London, where I met my husband the following year. Before becoming a lawyer, I worked in marketing at a top law firm and as a paralegal for a few years. When I’m not working, I’m usually on my Peloton bike, exploring my neighbourhood in South London, or curled up on the couch with a glass of wine.
