Dara graduated with honors from Umpqua Community College in the spring of 2013, earning her Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies. While in school, Dara worked as a Supervisor for Dickie Jo’s Burgers in Eugene and Tualatin, which taught her to solve problems on the spot, learn new information quickly and how to relate with all types of customers. She got her first taste of the legal field interning for a criminal defense attorney in Eugene.
