After graduating from law school and passing the Montana Bar, I now serve as the Senior VP at Agile Data Solutions. At Agile, I help influence the future of e-discovery processes in the legal field, writing scholarly papers, performing research, and applying e-discovery best practices with our clients. I enjoy helping make e-discovery easy!
One of my favorite passions is skydiving. I've been skydiving since 2003, and instruct people via both the Tandem and Accelerated Freefall (AFF) methods of training. When I need to "get away" then you will likely find me at the dropzone. While jumping is a thrill, I am absolutely happy when I get to see that reaction on my student's face when I get us to the ground safely. Their happiness is what drives me to keep instructing!
Let's face it, there is plenty to do in Montana! I also enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, floating the many rivers, and just otherwise enjoying the outdoors of beautiful Big Sky Country. All of Montana is absolutely amazing, with hard working and fit Montanans surrounding you. And if you get a flat tire, someone is still likely to stop and help you!
