Associate Attorney In St. Louis, MO
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I attended Eastern Illinois University to pursue my degree in history with plans to attend law school after. While at Eastern, I was a member of Student Government, Alpha Phi Sorority and Phi Alpha Delta. I served as Alpha Phi’s Philanthropy Chair to organize events and raise money for women’s heart health. I served as the Affairs Chair for Student Government and bridged the gap between the Eastern student body and the Charleston community by planning events to raise funds to give back to local organizations. I graduated from Eastern with my BA in History with Departmental Honors. As a part of the Honors College I had to complete an undergraduate thesis and subsequently defend my thesis. My thesis research spanned over three years and was centered on the development of children’s rights in the United States. I also graduated with a minor in Spanish, Pre-Law, and Latin American Studies. I was able to live in Argentina for a summer to develop my Spanish speaking and immerse myself in their culture. After graduation from Eastern, I attended St. Louis University School of Law. While in law school I was a Legal Research and Writing Teaching Assistant and participated in Moot Court. I completed a concentration in International and Comparative law, producing two required research projects – my first research project was centered on CIA torture tactics used post 9/11 and the second project was centered on the use of the death penalty for mentally ill offenders.
Throughout my educational journey I have focused heavily on my research and writing skills and have enjoyed the process thoroughly.
