I joined Cooley's full-time faculty after having served as a Legal Methods instructor, a research and writing grading assistant, and visiting professor.

My legal work experience includes having served as a research attorney for a circuit court judge in Livingston County, Michigan, and doing appellate work. As a Cooley student, I won seven American Jurisprudence Awards and Certificates of Merit. I was also a member of the Cooley Law Review, where I served as a managing associate.

I am a member of the Cooley Legal Authors Society, served as the faculty adviser for the former Michigan Opinion Notes, and was the program director for Introduction to Law I and II. I was a faculty specialist with the Academic Resource Center at Cooley.
