What attracted you to Loyola:
I went to Loyola as an undergraduate and was immediately attracted to the Jesuit educational mission.  It was really a "no-brainer."  Loyola provides a world class education but also is acutely aware of the bigger picture.

What is the greatest learning experience you have had at Loyola:

My greatest learning experience at Loyola has been Professor William's Secured Transactions class.  He is engaging, passionate, and articulate.

Who inspires you and Why:

My mother is my inspiration.  She is currently in remission with Lymphoma but still lives a very selfless life, dedicated to her family, work, friends, and charitable causes.

Extracurricular Activities Hobbies and Interests:

I currently work as a law clerk for Vedder Price P.C.  In my free time I enjoy distance running, soccer, and going to see concerts.

Community service or other volunteer activities:
I am currently looking for a new group to volunteer with that fits into my hectic schedule.

Area of legal interest and or your intended practice area upon graduation:

I recently accepted an offer to be an associate in the Investment Services Department at Vedder Price, upon graduation.
