BIO

Sydney joined the Banyan team in 2022. She supports the firm in a wide range of matters, including firm administration, client intake, research, and legal drafting.

She loves learning, tackling the most difficult challenges, working with people, and using her highly organized nature to keep track of details and deadlines in order to bring projects to completion.

Before transitioning to law, she worked in healthcare and was trained in medical laboratory sciences. Sydney is excited to support our clients by helping them build, expand, and maintain their businesses all while helping them navigate systemic barriers.
