Wanting to hone her trial skills, she left private practice to handle a criminal caseload at The Defender Association. In her six years there, she handled hundreds of misdemeanor, juvenile and adult felony cases. She went into private practice in 2001, initially focusing on state misdemeanor and felony cases. She has since expanded her practice to include federal criminal offenses. She is a graduate of Harvard Law School and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
