Prior to my legal career, I worked as an accountant for large corporations such as Sprint and General Dynamics. I became licensed to practice law in Missouri in 2007 and Kansas in 2008. I clerked for the Honorable Stephen W. Nixon in the 16th Circuit of Missouri. I then practiced solo for several years in the area of family law. I’ve recently partnered with two other family practitioners forming Lawson Norris Sorensen, LLC. Our firm practices in family law, probate, estate planning, trademark, and traffic law.

I am a member of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association (KCMBA), Secretary for the KCMBA Domestic Law Committee. The Missouri Bar Association’s Family Law Section, The Johnson County Bar Association, the Johnson County Family Law American Inn of Courts, and the Association for Women Lawyers of Greater Kansas City.
