Aja graduated cum laude with a BA in Communication and a minor in English from Linfield College before receiving her JD from Vanderbilt University Law School, where she served on the Moot Court Board as the Executive Problem Editor for the National First Amendment Moot Court Competition. After several years in practice with various Portland area civil litigation firms, Aja learned she much prefers supporting clients behind the scenes (and out of the courtroom!), though she remains actively licensed in both Oregon and Washington. She enjoys working closely with clients to help make the difficult and often arcane process of a family law case as easy and understandable as possible.
Outside of the office, Aja performs professionally with a number of musical theater companies in the area, including Broadway Rose and Lakewood, and is a member of CoLevity, a dance-based performing company.
