What was your most memorable law school moment?
Competing in the National Trial Competition this February. We didn’t have the results we wanted, but my teammates were fantastic, we had fun, and it was a great team to be a part of.

Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through law school without…
my husband, coffee, and running.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
My supervisor from my 1L summer job, Chad Joseph. He’s both the kind of trial attorney I want to be and the kind of person I want to be in my future career.

What did you learn about yourself in law school?
I always thought I preferred independent work, but after doing almost all of my studying 1L year with other people, I realized I really prefer working with other people. I learned that I learn best by talking ideas through and being able to hear information from others. Turns out I 100% prefer working with other people.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
Professor Boldt. I went to office hours for Professor Boldt’s class almost every week 1L year, and he was so patient and thorough in answering questions and explaining information that it really elevated my learning experience. I love his teaching style and find him incredibly interesting to talk to. I wish I could have taken more classes with Professor Boldt.

What was your favorite class and why?
Advanced Bioethics with Professor Henry. For one thing, it was just really interesting to learn from someone with so much expertise in a field that I know very little about. The class was so attainable, but also made you question everything you thought you believed and showed how complex some of these areas are and how there are really no simple answers (just better ones). Professor Henry also really went above and beyond to work with students, which I think always makes a class really great.

Thanks, friends. I wish we could celebrate in person, but I’m glad to know you’re healthy at home. Glad to have spent three years learning from and with you, competing with you, and being in your company. I hope to see you soon.
