What was your most memorable moment?
There are so many! I will never forget the feeling of representing my first client as a student attorney in the Youth, Education and Justice Clinic. I also will never forget how proud and honored I was to be elected Editor in Chief of the Maryland Law Review.

Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through this experience without…
patient friends and family, exceptional mentors, and a loving and supportive partner.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
Meghan Casey is one of my many mentors at Gallagher Evelius & Jones. In addition to being an infinite source of sage advice, Meghan has taught me countless lessons about how to practice law with tenacity and integrity.

Who was your favorite professor and why?
Professor Henry is one of the most brilliant and engaging teachers I have ever taken a class with. Professor Pinard taught me that there is no substitute for adequate preparation and attention-to-detail when you’re representing a client. And Professor Steinzor is a fabulous mentor and does a masterful job of making an intimidating subject (administrative law) approachable and comprehensible. All three of them were instrumental in my law school journey and helped me shape my plans for post-graduation.

What was your favorite class and why?
Civil Procedure! To be an effective litigator, you have to understand the rules of the game.

Write a message.
The Maryland Carey Law experience is special because of the people who make up our law school community. I am tremendously thankful to my professors and classmates for three years of challenging work, stimulating conversations, and countless memories.
