Life Before Dickinson Law:
I worked full-time for seven years before coming to law school doing legal and non-legal work.

A Dickinson Law Favorite:
The professors are brilliant. I have connected with so many cordial and supportive professors.

Why Dickinson Law?:
I wanted to attend a law school in a small town in order to focus on my studies.

I completed a summer externship at the Federal Public Defender’s Office. It was an amazing experience because it allowed me to attend trials and hearings. The most memorable experience has been attending a sentencing hearing, where I saw a defendant receiving a life sentence.

Favorite Course:
My favorite course is Criminal Law. Professor Groome did a great job presenting both sides of the story on various cases to challenge our perception of what is a crime and what is justice.

Advice for Prospective Law Students:
Take your first year very seriously and try to do well. It has a big impact on your post-graduation employment.

Something You Love About Carlisle:
I like the fact that Carlisle is pretty close to three major cities: Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.

On Choosing A Law School:
I wish I would have known where alumni practice both geographically and by practice area. 

You’d Never Guess That… :
I write fiction. I am hoping to publish a novel later in life.

Favorite Book:
Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis: it’s a book about living a liberating and worry-free life.
