How did you get into patent law?
During law school I interned at UNeMed and clerked at Suiter Swantz IP, gaining a valuable perspective on intellectual property and patent law. These experiences, together with my natural curiosity, led me to pursue a career in patent law.

The thing I like best about working at Suiter Swantz is the satisfaction that comes with overcoming a new challenge on a daily basis. One thing that makes Suiter Swantz unique is the distinct array of backgrounds and interests of the staff and attorneys who work here.
What is one of the biggest challenges you’ve faced professionally?
One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced professionally…I’m not sure, ask me tomorrow. Every day is its own challenge in this field.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in picturesque Moab, Utah with my large family (I am 1 of 12). I enjoyed the hikes and scenery and still go back to visit when I am able.
If you could spend the day with someone famous (living or dead) who would it be?
If I could spend a day with someone famous, it would likely be Thomas Edison.
What is your favorite book/song?
My favorite book is a youth fiction novel, The Summer of the Monkeys; my favorite movie The Hunt for Red October (Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin); my favorite song is probably Home (Phillip Phillips).
As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was young, I remember telling my parents that I wanted to become a few different things at different stages in my life, including attorney and inventor. I find now I’m very fortunate because I get to do work in both areas.
What do you like to do outside the office?
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family; I play basketball and help out with a youth group and a Boy Scout troop in Papillion.
