If a subject ends in “ology” or involves lab coats, it’s likely that La’Cee has taken an interest in it at some point in her life. La’Cee had the goal of becoming a scientist herself as she earned undergraduate degrees in chemistry and neuroscience with concentrations in physical chemistry and neuropharmacology from Drake University. She attended graduate studies in physical chemistry at Iowa State University before she decided to put her science background to work by protecting ideas, inventions, and innovation.
La’Cee graduated with her Masters early from Drake University Law School with certifications in International Law & Comparative Human Rights Law and International Intellectual Property. In between classes, she was a captain for both arbitration and moot court teams and president of the Intellectual Property Society while also working as a Research Fellow for renowned international intellectual property expert Peter K. Yu. Her international law experience was furthered even more when she lived abroad in France.
Today, you’ll find La’Cee bringing her unique global and scientific perspective to our clients. She works in patent prosecution, appellate argument, patent portfolio management, trademarks, and licensing. Oh, and when she has a spare moment, she shares her knowledge by coaching the arbitration team at Drake Law and judging mock trial for the Iowa State Bar Association.
