What attracted you to Loyola:
I really wanted to go to law school in Chicago and Loyola represented the ideal opportunity to get a great legal education and be in a place where I want to practice after graduation.

What is the greatest learning experience you have had at Loyola:
My time in Loyola's Advocacy Program has been my greatest learning experience both in terms of practical lessons taught within the program and in terms of meeting practitioners that have been kind enough to share their knowledge and experience.

Who inspires you and Why:
My parents. They are two of the kindest and most generous people I know. You can tell a lot about people by the way they treat others and my parents have been true examples to me and the rest of my siblings throughout my life.

Extracurricular Activities Hobbies and Interests:
Member of the Moot Court National Team, In-House Director of the Moot Court Board, Sports and Entertainment Law Society, Child Law Society, Running, Basketball

Community service or other volunteer activities:
I taught for two years in an under-resourced school in Fort Worth, Texas prior to enrolling in law school.

Area of legal interest and or your intended practice area upon graduation:
My primary area of legal interest is litigation. My hope is to enter the area of criminal prosecution or civil defense.
