Life Before Dickinson Law:
I worked fulltime at South Georgia State College in my hometown. I started in the Registrar’s office before moving to Student Accounts.
A Dickinson Law Favorite:
The feeling of community. I feel supported in everything.
Why Dickinson Law?:
I come from a very small town, so the smaller class size and community helped me feel comfortable with moving my entire life 800 miles away to start this journey. The entire environment was so comfortable from the very beginning.
