What was your most memorable law school moment?
Getting the acceptance email

Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through law school without…
My friends, Cindy and Nia.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
My negotiation coach, Alexandria Montanio, has been a huge role model for positively impacting the community and the profession of law as a young lawyer. Her honest advice and high standards have really helped me push harder and aim higher.

What did you learn about yourself in law school?
Three years of law school while working full time has shown me what my priorities in life really are.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
Neil Dilloff is immensely knowledgeable, honest, and practical. His courses have taught lessons immediately applicable to professional and personal life. He went the extra mile to expose us to real life practitioners addressing real issues that we were learning about—even arranging for us to observe them at their workplaces. And he’s so, so, so funny.

What was your favorite class and why?
Negotiation was my favorite class because it was so useful in every part of my life—work, school, family, and even shopping.

Write a message.
Thank you to my husband, Adam; my Mother, Jeanine; my friends; and my colleagues in the office of community engagement, the president’s office, and university counsel. I received so much help and guidance to get through law school, and so much forgiveness outside of law school that I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to repay it all. But I will definitely try!
