Combining my passion for law and business, I pursued a concurrent MBA degree alongside my law degree to gain a better understanding of the business realities that my clients face and provide value-added legal services. As a lawyer, I strive to diligently represent my clients on all aspects of their legal matters and deliver results that align with their business objectives. During my downtime, I enjoy watching sports and spending time with my dog, Oliver.
