Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
One of my biggest mentors throughout law school has been Professor Paula Monopoli. She has pushed me to think critically about issues that impact women in the legal field and inspired me to lead with confidence and encourage other woman around me to achieve their goals. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from such a great professor and leader!

What did you learn about yourself while earning this degree?
The law school experience is different for everyone. It’s important to find what works for you and be confident in who you are as a future attorney. Everyone has a gift and part of being in law school is learning what your gift is and how you can use it to help others and achieve your goals.

What was your favorite class and why?
My favorite class is law school was Child Custody and the Law taught by Professor Sarah Nesbitt. I have always had a passion for child advocacy and this class was extremely practical for my future as a family law attorney. It was also great to walk away from the class being certified as child counsel in a custody case before I even enter practice.
