Chasta is a Pacific Northwest native. Born and raised in the Columbia River Gorge, Chasta decided a change of scenery was necessary after high school. Chasta attended Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire, where she earned dual bachelor’s degrees in sport management and marketing management while working in an NCAA DIII athletics office and with the Philadelphia 76ers.
After a few years of Northeast living, Chasta returned to the Northwest to attend law school. Chasta graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School in 2015. While at the law school, Chasta worked at the Lewis & Clark Legal Clinic, handling bankruptcy, landlord-tenant, and family law cases, both as an intern and law clerk. The Legal Clinic was where Chasta cultivated a passion of advocating for her client’s interests and became the final recipient of the Legal Clinic’s Outstanding Advocate Award. Chasta also earned a spot in Lewis & Clark’s distinguished Cornelius Honor Society for her work with the Council on Court Procedures.
Chasta’s past legal experience includes a variety of areas including civil litigation, business, probate, land use, and appellate work. However, Chasta is thrilled to once again be practicing family law where she feels her skills can be put to the best use by working with families during some of the most difficult times in their lives.
In her free time, Chasta enjoys spending time with her husband, following the Toronto Raptors, crafting, tap dancing, and adventuring with her three dogs, Grimm, Ella, and DragonFyre.
