Kianna graduated magna cum laude with an undergraduate degree in International Political Economics from University of Washington. She went on to study law at Willamette University College of Law where she received numerous honors and awards. After graduating in the top third of her class, Kianna became a Public Defender and received an award for zealous advocacy after being nominated by her peers. Before earning her degrees she worked in the technology industry in Seattle and thus has the perfect blend of skills for her work at Galois.
Kianna loves living in Portland. Having grown up in Alaska, the rain never ever bothers her! She loves the foodie scene and that there is always something new and interesting to do. She also loves being able to go to the coast, the mountains, or wine country all within an hour drive.
