Summer 2023 Employment
I was a law clerk at the U.S. Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division, in the Natural Resources Section.

Why W&M Law?
I chose to study law because I wanted to advance my career in marine conservation and policy. I chose William & Mary because I liked the concept of the Citizen Lawyer, and because W&M has an environmental law concentration and an environmental journal. I was excited by W&M's offering of a course in Admiralty/Maritime Law. I also liked W&M's proximity to Washington, DC.

How would others describe me?
Outgoing, kind, strong leader
