What work do you do with the Commission?
I serve as a liaison on the Commission from the ABA's Young Lawyer's Division.
What inspires you, professionally and personally?
I am inspired by community professionally and personally. I became an attorney to assist those that get lost in the legal system and those same people inspire me to continue to advocate for access to justice and work to help my students think through their roles as attorneys in our legal system.
What are your areas of expertise or what areas are particularly interesting to you?
I focus my scholarship on the intersection of the law and marginalized communities.
Who inspires you?
My mother inspires me. She has always been a person to go above and beyond for those less fortunate and watching her I have impacts on those around us with small gestures made me want to give back as well. The littlest action can have the biggest impact on another's life.
What do you do to relax, de-stress, or recharge your batteries?
I practice kickbox two to three times a week. Additionally, on my breaks from teaching, I read mystery novels.
What are you currently reading?
I have currently decided to start over and read all of Patricia Cornwell's books from the beginning. The book I am reading is Postmortem.
Share one thing you have learned, big or small, doing your work over the past year?
Through my work this year, I have learned to think outside of the box when advocating for those I represent.
