BEFORE LAW SCHOOL …

I was a Legal Assistant to a small social security disability practice; a supervisor at a hotel; and a part-time administrative manager for a salon. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Georgia State University.

WHY WVU LAW?

I have a friend from Georgia State who attended WVU Law and enjoyed the experience so much that she persuaded me to come. She bragged about Dean McConnell, the amazing staff, and students. I wanted to come to a school with a familial feel. Here, everyone is dedicated to making a person the best they can be. Not only is the staff focused on excellence but everyone is extraordinarily friendly and made my transition into the legal field a joyful experience.

LAW INTEREST

Immigration Law.

IN 10 YEARS …

I see myself being an amazing attorney and advocate for immigrant rights. I have had family suffer from a lack of knowledge and the proper ways to apply for citizenship. I hope I can be the voice of justice when immigrants are mistreated in the process of citizenship.

OUTSIDE OF LAW SCHOOL …

Law school takes up so much of my time. However, I’ve met wonderful friends here and we enjoy cooking together and critiquing movies.
