I began my career as a Patent Examiner at the US Patent and Trademark Office in 2009, where I examined applications in the area of fuel cells and batteries. Following a move to the UK in 2010, I joined Keltie LLP as a Patent Assistant and trained there for four years. In 2014, I moved in house and became a Patent Attorney at BTG, a publicly listed company specialising in medical devices for interventional medicine. Two years later, I returned to private practice and have joined Gill Jennings & Every LLP, where I work in the Chemistry and Life Sciences group and specialise in contentious work.
As a dual national (American and British) who began my career at the USPTO, I am highly interested in cross-jurisdictional differences in IP law as well as how the UK profession is perceived within the wider global community. Outside of work, I have run three marathons and enjoy scuba diving, travelling and photography.
