Hi. I’m Zoë! I’m originally from Washington state, born and raised. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). We moved to Arkansas for me to attend law school and loved it! I’ve graduated, married, bought a house, found a job, have dogs and cats and a baby named Ruth! We love southern living and my husband and I are here to stay.
Before law school and even college, I held several jobs including packing and storing apples at an apple warehouse, grocery store clerk, lifeguard, and swim instructor. I’m from Yakima, Washington, which is primarily known for its agriculture, hops, and wineries. With that, there were, and still are, a ton of less fortunate, underrepresented people in the town who need legal services. I guess that comes with every city, huh? That’s how I found my love for becoming an attorney and off I went.
To get on track for law school, I majored in Criminal Justice and Criminology with minors in Political Science and Psychology. I’ve always stayed busy and involved, as I was Scholarship Chairwoman and on the board of Academics for Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, Beta Sigma chapter. In addition, I participated in a $1,000,000 research project in the Criminal Justice Department at Washington State University.
While in law school, I clerked at several places and gained substantial experience in criminal defense, family law, property law, social security disability, and even some personal injury law. I’ve found great love in criminal defense and family law, which is why I am the perfect fit for the Lion Legal Services team. I am outgoing, ambitious, and strong-willed. I understand what it means to be in need, and worried about how the legal process works. That’s why I’m the gal for you. There will never be a time that you can’t reach out to me to ask questions and be reassured that I’ve got your back, whether in the office and in the courtroom.
In my spare time, I enjoy crafting and DIY projects, spending time on my porch playing cards, or simply hanging out with friends. I especially love the summer and the lakes!
