Summer 2023 Employment
This summer, I worked for the Office of the Public Guardian in Chicago. At this job, I conducted legal research, drafted motions and other court documents, assisted in case preparation, and supported attorneys in advocating for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. I also represented clients in Permanency Hearings, Status on discovery, Termination of Parental Rights, Temporary Custody Hearing, and interviewed clients pursuant to my 711 license.

Why W&M Law?
One of the main reasons why I decided to study law it is a broad discipline. In this field, I can constantly work with different cases that pose different kinds of problems. I chose William & Mary Law because of the smaller class sizes, choice in clinics, and the variety of courses offered.

How would I describe myself? 
Very outgoing and friendly
