She serves on the Board of Directors for the Minnesota Lavender Bar Association and provides pro bono services for both the Children's Law Center of Minnesota and the Volunteer Lawyers Network. She graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was on the managing editorial board of the Journal of Law & Politics.
