Favorite Memory from GW Law

Meeting my now, life-long group of friends! And attending Barristers Ball each year, I will never forget dancing until my feet hurt at the National Building Museum and Nats Park!


Favorite Quote

"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise."

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

"Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."

Andy Dufresne, Shawshank Redemption

"I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count."

Jack Dawson, Titanic

With Gratitude

I am beyond appreciative of my parents, sisters, grandparents, and friends that were all involved in getting me towards this finish line, AKA law school graduation. Even during the worst of times when I, myself, didn't think I could do it, you always made sure to encourage me to keep going and to tell me that I was far more capable than I ever could have possibly imagined. I want to thank my fellow law school friends and classmates, you have made this process not only possible but entirely more fun! Ashton, thank you for being the best friend and law school mentor that a girl could ask for! And to all my professors and employers, especially Andrea Loving, you have all pushed me to be better both personally and professionally, thank you!
