Wichita Falls, Texas

1. Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas, and was the first in my family to be born in the US.

2. Where did you attend undergrad?

University of Oklahoma

3. What degree(s) have you earned?

In 2003 I graduated from the Texas Academy of Math and Science, and finished my undergraduate degree at OU in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in mathematics.

4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?

I chose to attend OU Law because I have developed roots in Oklahoma over the last nine years, and I believe OU embodies many of the aspects I respect most about the state - emphasis on solid foundations and values and hard work.

5. What is your favorite thing about OU?

OU's campus is always alive with energy, and anyone not from Oklahoma will quickly find the people here to be friendly, caring and down to earth.

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

Over the last four years working in the transportation insurance industry, I have seen transportation attorneys affect a huge difference between motor carriers that protect their companies and those that fall victim to an ever more litigious environment. I chose to pursue a legal education in order to be able to work with businesses to better structure companies and contracts and promote responsible business growth.

7. What is an interesting fact about you?

I have played violin and piano for 14 years a piece, drums for two years and guitar for a semester. I once played a saxophone for all of five minutes.
