Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through law school without…
the friends I made in Baltimore.
Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
Diane Hoffmann and Frank Pasquale are two professors who had a profound impact on my understanding and passion for health law. Amy Dilcher is a former boss who worked tirelessly in her role as in-house counsel for a health care provider while also taking time out to teach me a lot about the business.
What did you learn about yourself in law school?
I would be lost without the support of my family.
Who was your favorite professor and why?
Paula Monopoli. She was very good at breaking down complex legal concepts in ways that were easily understandable for me. Her scholarship is really important. I also think she is just a fun person to be around.
What was your favorite class and why?
Critical Issues in Health Care with Diane Hoffman. The class was open to nursing, medical, and social work students. It was refreshing to make friends outside of the law school during my 1L year.

First and foremost, thanks to my parents who have supported me through a prolonged academic journey. Thanks to my girlfriend Sarah Jane Peterson who also endured the demands of law school.
Thanks to my siblings who put up with countless late night texts and snaps when I felt like procrastinating. Thanks to my Uncle Dave and Aunt Karen in Virginia for the home-cooked meals. Thanks to all my friends back home who were always up for a round of golf or a round of ginger ales whenever I needed to escape Baltimore. Thanks to all of my new friends in Baltimore including Mark Conor who introduced me to the hockey community here.
Thanks to all of the faculty and staff at Carey Law who helped me along the way.
