1. What made you want to attend law school?
From a young age law school has been my plan. Growing up, my family dealt with many lawyers for various personal reasons, and watching them help my family grow in the safest and best way possible was the most inspiring experience. I hope to give back to my community in this same way.

I chose UConn Law because, as a UConn undergrad alumna, I feel I can trust their process, staff, and atmosphere, as I had such an amazing and successful experience at the Storrs campus. In addition, it allows for a promising career within the state of Connecticut, where much of my family is based.

4. What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, being with my friends and family as much as possible, and teaching fitness classes at my local gym. 

5. How do you want to use your law degree?
My goal is to become an advocate for those in need. Ideally I hope to work in family law, especially as a guardianship lawyer, to help children dealing with traumatic family experience.

My favorite lawyer-type media is actually the Netflix original series, "The People v. O.J. Simpson."
