Ms. Schumacher graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a degree in business, and received her Juris Doctorate from Sandra Day O’Conner School of Law at Arizona State University, where she was honored with the Highest Pro Bono Distinction, National Association of Law Placement’s PSLawNet Pro Bono Publico Award, Thomas Tang scholarship for her work with commercially exploited persons, and Arizona State University Spirit of Scholar award.
Her passion for community service and helping others led her to form an organization called 13-Advocacy against Sex Trafficking during her first year of law school. This group assisted in the development of sex trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence training programs, organized a free legal clinic at local hospitals, and partnered with a number of state and non-profit agencies in Arizona.
During law school, Ms. Schumacher worked in the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office Sex Crimes Unit and as a victim advocate for a local domestic violence agency. She also studied child abduction law and refugee law in Valetta, Malta, as well as worked in the Philippines with an organization that works with victims of sexual and domestic violence, and child abuse. Following law school, Ms. Schumacher worked as an attorney at Arizona State University in the Halle Center for Family Justice, representing victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, and child abuse. Most recently, she was employed in private practice of family and juvenile law at another law firm in Phoenix, before coming to Davis Faas and Blase.
In her free time, Ms. Schumacher is an amateur photographer, loves all things soccer, and spends time with her husband, four cats, and two dogs.
