A Washington native, Rebecca received a B.A. in history from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and her J.D. from Georgetown in Washington, DC. She worked as a civil litigator in Seattle and New York City before switching to public interest law. In the course of that work, she appeared in state and federal courts and worked on complex, multi-party litigation. Prior to this position, she was a criminal public defender in King County.
Rebecca's practice areas include all facets of dependency law, from shelter care to termination trials, and criminal law, from arraignment to trial. She has conducted numerous trials. Rebecca chose to move to dependency law because she wanted to work with clients on a long-term basis and advocate for individuals who are facing life-changing situations.
Historically, Rebecca did legal work in Uganda and South Korea and has traveled widely. She enjoys writing fiction, reading, hiking, and Crossfit.
