I was born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa.  I left the Midwest to earn my undergraduate degree at Harvard University, then spent several years working for the New York Daily News in New York City. 

I slowly migrated back to my Midwestern roots by attending law school at the University of Wisconsin.  Inspired by a bankruptcy course in law school, I decided to focus my practice on bankruptcy and representing debtors.  I clerked for Judge Robert D. Martin of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Wisconsin and taught the bankruptcy law course at the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2010 and 2013.

Finally, in 2010 I came full circle when I returned to Dubuque.  I practice at the law firm of Reynolds & Kenline in Dubuque and focus the majority of my practice on helping people in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin with their debt problems. I speak frequently at Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars about bankruptcy and debt-related issues.
