During law school, Taryn worked as a research and teaching assistant, and as a legal intern for different firms with varying practice areas where she gained valuable experience arguing motions, managing discovery, participating in client interviews, and conducting and defending depositions.

Outside the Firm

In her free time, Taryn loves to play outside! Running, biking, snowboarding, and yoga are among her favorite activities. She is currently trying to train her dog to paddle board with her—so far the experience has left much to be desired. Taryn is also a sucker for any live music or festival.
