From an early age, I was always interested in the law and the civil servants working in the legal profession. As a teenager, I would watch a variety of different courtroom drama television shows and movies and be captivated by their ability to restore justice and institute a sense of societal order. I loved how practicing law could provide an opportunity to help individuals who often found themselves in difficult and desperate situations without adequate help and support. Growing up in New Jersey, I also knew that I wanted to experience the world outside of my hometown, so I eventually made the decision to attend college at Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu. As a student, I chose to study international relations where I hoped to learn about new cultures and gain a broader understanding and perspective on the world.
When it came time to graduate in 2000, I still couldn't shake my interest and passion for the law, so I decided to enter into law school so that I could begin a career path toward practicing law full time. I was quickly accepted into my hometown university, Seton Hall Law School, where I would eventually graduate with honors in 2003. After graduation, I decided to return to Hawaii and immediately begin practicing family law, as I believed this would be an area where I could make a difference by helping individuals and families overcome difficult circumstances.
