Describe your final year of law school in 3 words.

Busy, exciting, bittersweet

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

Learn how you study best, and try not to compare your law school journey to anyone else’s.

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

Pie Junkie! My favorite in the spring is the Strawberry Diner.

What will you miss most about OCU Law?

Being able to park downtown, even on the weekend!

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

Professor Harrell is the funniest professor...if you are prepared for class, that is.

What was your most memorable moment from this school year?

Being able to be involved in a leadership capacity for different organizations is always challenging but rewarding. The best event I helped plan was Barristers Ball.

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

Thank you for your continued support. For believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself. And thank you to my parents for paying for my trips back home for the holidays.

What are your plans after graduation?

After passing the bar I plan to go work for the government in some capacity. Eventually, I would love to become a Judge.
