Okemah, Oklahoma

1. Where did you grow up?

Okemah, Oklahoma

2. Where did you attend undergrad?

I am a first generation college graduate from Oklahoma State University. 

3. What degree(s) have you earned?

I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness with Pre-law option.

4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?

I love the state of Oklahoma. After spending some time away from here, I had a deep desire to come back. Couple that with my goal to earn a law degree and there was no better choice than OU Law.

5. What is your favorite thing about OU?

As a lifelong Cowboy fan, it is uncharted territory to not be thinking competitively of OU. My favorite thing is to learn about the University and the culture here.

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

Agriculture. My experience in this industry has shown me the need of farmers, ranchers, and rural areas for legal advice. If I can help the people involved in these areas, I will consider my legal career a huge success.

7. What is an interesting fact about you?

I was Oklahoma State’s Mascot, Pistol Pete, and Homecoming King in the same year.
