Describe your final year of law school in 3 words.

Invigorating, Gratifying, Empowering

What advice would you give to next year's first year class?

I encourage all first year law students to find some kind balance that allows them "free time." To have a successful, healthy, and enjoyable law school experience, you have to stay positive and work diligently.

For students who are new to the OKC area, what is one place they should visit or restaurant they should try?

PIE JUNKIE

What will you miss most about OCU Law?

All of the people that I get to see on a daily basis! OCU Law is full of extraordinary people. I will miss friends who move away to practice law elsewhere, the faculty that I was privileged to be instructed by, and the admissions office team that I was able to work for!

What professor or staff member stands out from your time here, and why?

Dean of Admissions, Dean Laurie Jones! She is sincerely the most caring and genuinely kind person at OCU Law. I worked for Dean Jones for two of my three years in law school and I have enjoyed every minute of our time spent on various admissions projects and events!

What was your most memorable moment from this school year?

I was privileged and honored to serve as the Student Bar Association President. I will never forget giving the call to service at Dean Jim Roth's Investiture Ceremony.

What is one thing you'd like to say to your family and/or friends on your graduation day?

I am truly grateful for the years of love and support that all of you have shown me!

What are your plans after graduation?

I will take the Oklahoma Bar Exam and find a place to practice law here in the state I have come to know and love.
