Why I'm a JPAL

I am a JPAL because it is fun to learn about exciting new technology and I enjoy meeting and supporting courageous entrepreneurs.


After serving as a Patent Examiner at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for five years and clerking at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit for two years, I entered private practice where I managed and tried patent infringement cases in both pharmaceutical and medical device arts. I joined Johnson & Johnson in 2016 to manage its patent litigation team.


"Love like there is no tomorrow."

Fun fact:

I am not a doctor because my identical twin sister is.
