Why I chose Wake Forest School of Law: While in undergrad at Wake Forest, I was fortunate to get to know a couple of law students and professors.  Everyone seemed so nice and welcoming.  It really impressed me that Wake Forest Law was an academically challenging school where people also supported and encouraged each other.  Meeting my future classmates at Accepted Students’ Day and House Hunt made me positive that Wake Forest was where I wanted to spend the next three years.

Leadership positions I’ve held:
Executive Editor, Wake Forest Law Review; Student Bar Association: Vice-President in 2014-15, Previously Secretary, 1L Class Representative; National Trial Team for Moot Court; Domestic Violence Advocacy Center: Fundraising & Event Co-Chair; Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity: Marshall; Moot Court: Co-Chair 1L Walker Competition.

Clinics or pro bono work I have been involved in: Teen Court Fall 2012-Fall 2013

1L Summer Experience: In-House Legal Intern at BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina

2L Summer Experience: I am currently working in the office of General Counsel for the WSFC School System and will be working at a healthcare firm in Greensboro, N.C.

Memorable moment from law school: In January 2014, I went to Nicaragua for a Cross Disciplinary Professional Development Program.  The program combined practical skill development with cultural events.  I was able to participate in my first client interview where I gained valuable skills that will follow me in any career.  I was also able to hike up and sled down an active volcano.  It was a great experience with a diverse group of students that I will remember as one of my favorite memories from law school.

What I plan to do after graduation: I came to law school with a strong interest in family law, which I am excited to be taking this semester.  I will have also worked in Health Care for two summers when I graduate and I have found it really interesting in how new and dynamic the field is.
