I always thought I would be a social worker until my senior year of college at the University of Cincinnati. During my senior year, I interned at the YWCA in Clermont County as a shelter advocate at the House of Peace domestic violence shelter and as a court advocate for individuals seeking civil protection orders in Clermont County Domestic Relations Court. After observing the positive influence attorneys had in securing safety and stability in the lives of broken families, I decided to apply to law school. I applied and was accepted to the University of Cincinnati College of Law.
After a year atUC College of Law, I have learned and grown immensely. Throughout my first year I had the opportunity to be involved with Law Women, Out and Allies, the Tenant Information Project, and the Freedom Center Journal. In the summer after my first year, I clerked at the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati researching mainly in the areas of family and immigration law. This coming year, I look forward to participating in the Domestic Violence and Civil Protection Order Clinic, Law Review, leading a Structured Study Group for first year students, and co-directing the Tenant Information Project.
