1. Where did you grow up?

Tulsa, Oklahoma

2. Where did you attend undergrad?

Washington University in St. Louis

3. What degree(s) have you earned?

I earned a Bachelors of Arts in International Area Studies.

4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?

I always knew I wanted to return to Oklahoma.  I've lived in Washington, D.C., for three years and am looking forward to being back in the place where I love the people and the pace of life.

5. What is your favorite thing about OU?

I don't know yet! But, so far, everyone with whom I've spoken has been wonderful.

6. What (or who) inspired you to pursue a legal education?

I had considered a law degree for quite some time, but my experiences in Washington, D.C., solidified that I wanted to return home and pursue this degree. For the past three years, I have worked in Congress for Representative Boren. Knowing the intricacies of how and where laws are made, I discovered my desire to know more on what happens to those laws. How enforceable are they? Do they lead to a more just society? I started looking into those questions, and it naturally led me here.

7. What is an interesting fact about you?

I have run seven marathons and am training for the Ironman Triathlon this November.
