I am an associate attorney at Vedder Price and a member of the firm's Government Investments and White Collar Defense practice since joining the firm in 2012. I have significant experience representing clients in regulatory investigations and proceedings brought by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Department of Justice (DOJ) and other regulators, as well as counseling clients during regulatory examinations. I routinely represent clients in connection with government investigations and proceedings relating to securities violations, fraud, books and records violations, and other violations of the securities laws, including matters involving whistleblower allegations, insider trading, accounting restatements and disclosures matters.
I have represented clients in several high profile cases involving receiverships and large-scale financial fraud, where I have worked closely with receivers, law enforcement officials, regulators and others to locate, preserve and maximize the value of the receivership.
Prior to joining Vedder Price, I was a Summer Honors Intern at the SEC in 2009 and an extern at FINRA in 2009-2010. In addition, I clerked for a federal judge for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. I graduated from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law with a certificate in tax in 2010.
I currently live in River North with my husband, cat, and two-year old daughter, Quinn. I love spending time outside with my family and taking advantage of all the culture and excitement living in Chicago has to offer.
