What attracted you to Loyola:
I was attracted to Loyola because of the law school's excellent health law program, emphasis on public service in the Jesuit tradition, and its great location in Chicago.

What is the greatest learning experience you have had at Loyola:
My greatest learning experience at Loyola was working as a student attorney for the Health Justice Project Medical-Legal Partnership Clinic. As a student attorney, I learned firsthand that the knowledge I have gained in law school can be used in a direct and powerful way to impact clients' lives for the better. I also learned that an interdisciplinary approach to the problem of disparities in health care-through law, medicine, and social work-can produce more positive change than any of those fields could on their own.

Who inspires you and Why:
Emily Benfer, Clinical Professor of Law at Loyola and Director of the Health Justice Project, inspires me because of her relentless passion to combat the legal problems underlying health care disparities in the Chicago area.
