Overview
Overview
I believe in embracing change. Inspired by the intersection of disciplines, I love redesigning the delivery of legal services. By combining technology, human-centered design, and business, I lead our Analytics team to help our clients and our firm leaders make data-driven decisions.

My career has taken me from high energy physics to biophysics, legal knowledge engineering, operations, and data analytics. With experience in unconventional technology roles in Intellectual Property, I am an expert at translating between technical and non-technical people. I have a Ph.D. in Physics and a Masters in Management of Technology. I am a registered patent agent and a certified scrum product owner. I have also written for, presented, and led conference sessions at the International Legal Technology Association.

When I’m not wrangling data or geeking out over legal tech, you’ll find me discovering new music or playing board games with my family.
