Bring your voice to a dynamic movement

Personal growth

During law school, I participated in the Colorado Pledge to Diversity, a group founded by Denver area law firms interested in bringing about real change to the legal community. Through an application to all Pledge participants, I was selected by Hogan Lovells to be a summer associate after my first year of law school.

As a summer associate, I was exposed to every practice area. I became most interested in projects coming through the Environmental practice group. And by the end of my second summer, I’d found my niche. When I came on as a law clerk during my third year of law school, I worked on projects involving natural resources, land use, environmental, siting, and regulatory issues, in addition to projects pertaining to development clients, oil and gas companies, and energy companies.

Deep relationships

The team I work most closely with is incredible. We know how to work with each other, what each expects from the others, and we’re all willing to do the work not just for the client, but for the furtherance of our team’s practice.

A common mindset

Hogan Lovells is different when it comes to pro bono, corporate responsibility, and diversity. The firm has designated committees to reach specific goals to improve and develop our involvement in these areas. Participation in the Colorado Pledge to Diversity is just one example of the firm’s diligent efforts to commit resources toward activities that will have a positive impact. 

More than anything, I think the atmosphere here creates opportunities for professional and leadership development. Every conversation I engage in and every project I work on is an opportunity for me to grow as a leader.
