During her time at the University of Minnesota, she worked as an intern for Pemberton Law Firm of Fergus Falls. During that time, she gained useful skills and furthered her interests in legal studies. Following graduating from the University of Minnesota, she worked for the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office mediating with Minnesota citizens and companies/organizations throughout the country. Her work at the Attorney General’s Office and Pemberton Law Firm were great opportunities in helping her realize the importance of legal resources in rural Minnesota.
The Brink Lawyers Northern Valley Scholarship provides support to Minnesota law students with ties to the Northern Red River Valley. The goal of the scholarship is to make it easier for law students to take up practice in the northern Red River Valley following law school graduation. The scholarship was established in part to address the current crisis of underrepresentation in rural areas, especially for people in poverty.
