What do you enjoy most about your role at Dickinson Law? As the Assistant Professor of Lawyering Skills and Director of Academic Success and Bar Preparation, I deeply enjoy building relationships with the students. I find purpose in helping students further develop skills that will cultivate the realization of their goals. My role is to support the students and to ensure they leave Dickinson Law better because of their decision to attend.
A Dickinson Law favorite: Dickinson Law's smaller class sizes foster an intimate learning experience and makes it truly one of a kind. With smaller classes, faculty, staff, and students are empowered to nurture an environment of family, commitment, and solidarity.
Best piece of advice for anyone considering Dickinson Law: Law school is TIME consuming. You will spend a lot of TIME reading, writing, memorizing, and analyzing. TIME is the most valuable asset you have. Where and how you spend your TIME training to be a legal advocate is important. Dickinson Law is the best choice for anyone who wants to ensure that their TIME is invested in a community who is committed to the success of students from start to finish.
Favorite thing to do in your spare time: In my spare time I enjoy playing with my son, watching movies, exploring walking trails, reading, attending music festivals, and spending time with family and friends.
You’d never guess…: One of my most favorite hobbies is interior design. I enjoy transforming spaces and taking on small DIY projects!
Life before Dickinson Law: I have worked in legal education for nine years. Prior to joining the Dickinson Law community, I served as the Director of Bar Preparation at North Carolina Central University. As Director, I oversaw, designed and developed a full-service bar prep program for law students and graduates that focused on the skills and strategies needed to successfully complete all components of the bar exam. In addition, I also taught several classes focused on skill development in the areas of test taking and areas of substantive law tested on the bar exam. I assisted with academic success efforts by teaching classes focused on critical thinking for first-year law students. Through my years in legal education, I have closely evaluated bar exam trends, including question formatting, concept frequency, and correlations between standardized tests, law school performance, and bar passage. I have assisted thousands of students with preparation for the bar exam. I take pride in being able to provide personalized insight to the needs of students to better identify areas where growth is needed and effective methods to achieve it. I received two Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Political Science, as well as a Master of Arts degree in English from Fayetteville State University. I received a Juris Doctor degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law. While in law school I was class president, a member of law review, a member of BLSA, and a Civil Procedure tutor. I am licensed to practice law in North Carolina and Virginia.
