Since graduation, she has been actively involved in helping the organization and its student members. In her law practice, Michelle provides counsel in complex commercial matters and focuses on banking and bad faith insurance and coverage litigation, bankruptcy and criminal law.

Alarie earned her J.D, cum laude, from William S. Boyd School of Law - University of Nevada, Las Vegas and B.A. in Political Science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
