Employment: Attorney at S.L. Pitts PC

Age: 26

Neighborhood: Ballard

I was raised in an interfaith family on a farm in Oregon. My mother is an East Coast Jew, and my father didn’t convert — but he supported the decision to give me a Jewish upbringing. I was always the only Jewish kid in my class. As a kid, I went to religious school, I had a bat mitzvah, and I taught Hebrew in high school. Growing up in a community where I didn’t have Jews around, I instantly feel a connection and a shared history whenever I meet another Jewish person. I was a religion major in college and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I then chose to attend law school because I wanted to learn to analyze and delve deeper into issues, not unlike Jewish scholars.
