May 24, 2018
 
It could very well be Mariah Dylla Gardiner’s innate ability to apply a creative approach to every case that contributes most to her skill with dealing with any situation. Of course, she also has lots of education to draw upon. For instance, while still in high school, Mariah published an article for the Concord Review, entitled “Criminal Justice.” After high school graduation she earned an undergraduate degree in French from Portland State University, cum laude. She then went on to receive her Juris Doctor from the University of Utah’s S.J. Quinney College of Law. While there, she also received the Frankel Public Interest Fellowship.

Even before she entered law school, Mariah Dylla Gardiner curated an oral history museum exhibit, in which she told the story of underground uranium miners in northwest New Mexico. She interviewed many of the miners and used the miner’s own words to provide those who visit with a lot of technical and historical information in the context of the Cold War. At the time, the government and contractors concealed hazards and delayed the implementation of safety regulations until the U.S. nuclear arsenal was complete.
