Where do you call home?
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.
