I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, the 3rd of six children. We grew up in the meat packing district of South Omaha. I graduated from Omaha Central High School 1985.

I was born in Moab, Utah and graduated from Grand County High School. I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah in Sociology. I attended Creighton Law school and graduated in 2004. I have been practicing bankruptcy ever since graduating from law school.
