Ezzy is a Salt Lake City native, raised by her resourceful refugee family. The importance of employment was always instilled in her upbringing.
Ezzy’s fifth grade teacher (after answering 10 of Ezzy’s questions) told her that she was either going to be a scientist or a lawyer. Fortunately for us, she wasn’t very good at math. Not knowing any attorneys or anything about lawyers, Ezzy started at the University of Utah thinking she would major in the law. She quickly found out that that wasn’t an option. She took several opportunities in her undergraduate for service including a three-month trip to Savusavu, Fiji during a category five cyclone. A pre-law program helped her realize that the law can be an instrument of change, invigorating her choice to be a lawyer. After graduating with a degree in political science (there was very little math in this type of science) and environmental and sustainability studies, she finally started her long anticipated legal education at S. J. Quinney College of Law.
Ezzy devoured every opportunity in law school to explore different types of law. After doing family law, in-house, and judicial internships, Ezzy was hired as a clerk for Strindberg & Scholnick, exposing her to the beautiful world of employment law. Ezzy evolved from being a clerk to an Associate upon being sworn into the Utah bar in 2020. During law school she served as the President of the Minority Law Caucus and wrote her seminar paper on improved legal communications with sexual harassment victims.
Ezzy spends her free time fostering the growth of her houseplants and puppy, Sage (which is the name of the dog not the plant). When there’s not a pandemic, she’s planning a trip where she’ll find delicious food. She’s dedicated to binge watching good TV and listening to new music.
