Where do you call home?

Orlando, Florida

Where did you study for your undergraduate degree?

Florida State University

Why did you decide to attend Wake Forest Law?

When I toured Wake Forest, I immediately fell in love with the campus and the faculty that I met. There was the impression that they were always there to help you succeed and that feeling has continued since enrolling.

Describe the Wake Forest community.

A small, tight-knit student body that is driven and competitive yet simultaneously very much willing to help out their fellow students. Wake Forest is a very collegial and friendly environment.

What are you involved in outside the classroom?

I am a member of the honor council and I volunteer extensively with the North Carolina Bar Association’s (NCBA) Wills for Heroes pro bono initiative.

What do you do for fun in Winston-Salem when you aren’t studying?

In my free time, I like reading, guerrilla gardening, and extreme ironing.

Where do you want your law degree to take you?

I would like to pursue a career in public service, specifically, elder law. I dream of assisting the elderly and underprivileged with their legal needs such as healthcare, disability, estate planning, etc.
