Born & raised in Oak Park, IL. Both of my parents were high school teachers in Chicago. Moved to Madison, WI to go to college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I worked in Madison for a year with the Juvenile Court Program and a private law firm while studying for the LSAT and preparing to apply for law school. Moved to Kenitra, Morocco for a year to teach English before coming back to Chicago to begin law school at Loyola University Chicago in 2019.

In my free time I like to read, cook, and listen to music. I enjoy outdoor activities such as running, biking, hiking and visiting new parks.
I ran competitively while in undergrad and was a multiple time All American in both track & field and cross country. While happily retired from competitive running these days, I do enjoy getting out to run with others every now and then.
Why Do You Work At The Firm
I wanted to work with C. Norris Law Group because of the passion that they bring to all of their clients’ cases. The energy and drive to win on behalf of clients who have been wrongly accused, falsely arrested, terrorized by law enforcement, or otherwise had their rights violated was something that immediately stood out about C. Norris Law Group.
What Are You Passionate About/What Motivates You to Work at the Firm
More than anything, I want to make sure that folks who have been harmed can find healing after the ordeal that they suffer. I believe this is especially true in cases where those doing the harm are police officers, prison guards, or other public officials who have been entrusted to follow the law and respect the rights of all people. I see these beliefs reflected in the staff at C. Norris Law Group and the work that we accomplish on behalf of our clients.
Favorite Part About Working at the Firm
The passion and the stories. All of the attorneys have been in the trenches, fighting for their clients for years and they bring that wisdom and experience to bear on all of their cases. It is an incredible environment to work and grow within.
