During law school, Clara was the Associate Editor of the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law and was on the ABA Moot Court Team. Clara worked in the Criminal Defense Legal Clinic and interned at the Story County Attorney’s office. For most of law school, Clara worked as a law clerk at Branstad & Olson, before joining our team as an attorney after passing the Iowa Bar.

Clara received her Bachelor of Arts and Sciences from Drake University in 2020 and her Juris Doctorate from Drake Law School in 2023.

Clara’s time outside of the office is usually spent with her dog, Mazie, finding cool spots in Des Moines with her friends, or doing yoga.
