What attracted you to Loyola:
I was attracted to Loyola for a number of reasons, among them its strong reputation in Chicago, its excellent trial practice program, and its Jesuit identity.

What is the greatest learning experience you have had at Loyola:
Moot Court has been my favorite experience at Loyola thus far. Not only has it introduced me to a great group of students and alumni, but it has afforded me the opportunity to improve both my writing and speaking skills.

Who inspires you and Why:
My parents inspire me because they are both intelligent, hard working, and kind. They are both excellent at what they do, in part because of how well they treat others.

Extracurricular Activities Hobbies and Interests:
Running, reading, baking, externing at the U.S. Attorney's Office, and traveling to visit friends.

Community service or other volunteer activities:
I volunteered at the Juvenile Detention Center during my first year of law school and continue to volunteer with the BC Alumni group in Chicago.

Area of legal interest and or your intended practice area upon graduation:
I am interested in litigation, both civil defense and criminal prosecution. I am going to work at a civil defense litigation firm after graduation.
