Marie Claire Christenson
I was born and raised here in Sioux Falls, SD. I attended Lincoln High School before heading down to Vermillion, SD to attend the University of South Dakota.
In 2018, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Dakota with my bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a minor in Criminal Justice. Following my graduation from USD, I spent a year substitute teaching for the Sioux Falls School District. I am extremely grateful for the time I spent working in the classroom.
In 2022, I graduated from the University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law. While in law school, I was a Research Assistant for the McKusick Law Library and served as President of the Student Bar Association. Upon graduation, I received the USD Knudson School of Law Dean’s Award for Service, Leadership, and Excellence. I will be taking the South Dakota Bar Exam in February 2023.
