I grew up in Michigan and transplanted to St. Louis after falling in love with the city during college. I'm social and outgoing and love keeping myself busy with things that challenge me. I really like spending time with friends, trying new things, and going on adventures whenever possible!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer who loves working with children and families. I run a non-profit organization that focuses on providing legal services to survivors of sexual violence.

On a typical Friday night I am
I have no typical Friday night. I enjoy staying in and relaxing or
going out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Admitting something doesn't keep it private, now does it?
