Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

I attended Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg, receiving a Juris Doctorate and graduating with a Pro Bono Distinction in 2015. During law school, I interned with the Schuylkill County and Dauphin County Public Defender’s Office. Prior to coming to Marzzacco, Niven & Associates I practiced defense work for a Workers’ Compensation firm in Harrisburg. I graduated from Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, PA, with degrees in History and Political Science. I was also involved in the Honors Program and received Honors in the Discipline for Political Science. While at Elizabethtown College, I studied abroad for a semester in Derry, Northern Ireland.

I grew up in Schuylkill County, PA. I belong to the Parish Council for Saint Joseph the Worker Parish in Frackville, PA, and actively volunteer in the church. I also run a food drive, called “Scare Away Hunger”, every Halloween for the Frackville Food Bank.

I love to run and completed my first half marathon in April 2018. I also play in a Co-Ed Softball League during the summer.
