I have worked as an administrative and legal assistant for Gretchen since 2015. In 2017, I earned my trademark paralegal certificate and now serve as her paralegal.
I thrive on new experiences and love solving intricate challenges. I’m a collaborator by nature, and my position with Gretchen gives me the opportunity to help clients protect what’s most important to them. It’s a wonderful responsibility!
My prior work experience gave me great preparation for working in a legal environment. Prior to working with Gretchen, I worked at an independent oil and gas company in Buffalo, New York. I started as a GIS Tech in land management, interpreting lease agreements and mapping company assets. I eventually branched out to work on access and regulations, design pipeline routes, file well permits, and assist with environmental compatibility studies. After four years, I became an executive assistant to the CEO and relocated to Houston, Texas. With the executive team, I coordinated business development and marketing to attract partners and investors, facilitated acquisitions and divestitures, and maintained compliance with the Oslo Stock Exchange.
My personal side
I currently call Austin, Texas, home and enjoy life with my fiancé and our twin daughters. We love to explore and travel the world. In fact, our daughters visited 27 states before the age of 2!
A fixer-upper first home and those rambunctious toddlers keep me busy most of the time, and a love of nature with a strong emphasis on health keep me balanced. For fun, we entertain friends, host barbecues and game nights, and plot our next adventures.
