“I LEARN FROM DIANA AND MEGHAN EVERY DAY. THEY ARE GREAT MENTORS IN SHARING HOW TO PRODUCE HIGH-QUALITY WORK IN IP LAW. I GET TO LEARN ABOUT NEW INVENTIONS EVERY DAY.”
Mikela Ritter | Technology Specialist
Mikela Ritter is a technology specialist at DiBerardino McGovern IP Group LLC (DMIP Group). She lends her expertise for invention disclosures, patent applications, and technical drawings. She also assists with patent prosecution. She is currently training to become a Patent Agent.
Prior to DMIP Group, Mikela studied astronautical engineering. Initially, she decided to pursue a career in academics and began her graduate education at Stanford University as a NASA Space Technology Research Fellow. However, she decided she enjoyed invention more than research, which led her into the world of patents.
In her spare time, Mikela is happiest in the mountains, especially in the snow. She loves to snowboard and, when not in the mountains, she also loves the beach, reading, meditating, and doing yoga. Being of service to her community and cultivating strong relationships with family, friends, and coworkers also gives her joy. She hopes to someday become a leader for a local Girl Scout troop. Mikela lives and works in Carlsbad, California.
