Position: Case Manager
Court: U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado
How long have you been with the Federal Judiciary?
I’m coming up on 11 years!
How long have you been a member of the NCBC, and how do you get involved?
I have been a member since 2012 and get involved with the NCBC to make the most its opportunities in every way I can. I am a graduate of MSU, and hopefully soon, a graduate of the LEAD Academy program. I am a member of the NCBC Education Committee, the Local Representative for my court, and I have facilitated several NCBC breakout sessions.
What has been your favorite NCBC Conference experience?
I have been fortunate enough to attend every conference since 2014. It’s impossible to choose a favorite as they were each very meaningful in their own way. With that said, I greatly appreciate the 2017 conference more than most because I was given the opportunity of welcoming fellow NCBC members as part of the host court. Having the chance to help organize and present an incredible conference for everyone to enjoy was a remarkable experience. Presenting a breakout session with my Chief Deputy Clerk on work/life balance, introducing the keynote speaker to more than 600 guests, and driving a 17 passenger van into the mountains full of conference attendees, then joining them in rafting down Colorado rapids were all extraordinary ways of pushing myself beyond my comfort zone and into new, exciting experiences.
How would you like to be more involved with the NCBC in the future?
I hope to become a member of the NCBC Board of Governors, and to continue working hard to bring NCBC members the fun and educational conferences they have come to expect, while continuing to push myself into new experiences and professional growth.
