WHAT’S YOUR DAY JOB?
I will be a 1L at Notre Dame Law in Fall 2014.
HOW DO YOU HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE?
I make a habit of writing down goals and checking in on them every now and then. I want to hold myself accountable for accomplishing the goals I set for myself, including being a strong role model for other women.
WHAT FUELS YOU TO TAKE ACTION?
By knowing how many young women there are out there that can benefit from a strong female role model. I take the opportunity I have to inspire others very seriously!
HOW DO YOU INSPIRE PROGRESS IN OTHERS?
Again, just by being a strong role model! It’s important to me to show by doing–not by telling. In my opinion, that’s the best way to show others you practice what you preach.
WHAT IS A RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENT YOU’RE PROUD OF?
I was lucky enough to receive the Algernon Sydney Sullivan award when I graduated from South Carolina in 2013. It is the highest honor (given to one male, one female) graduating in that particular year. I was so flattered that the administrators of my school saw me to be a woman of such integrity and strong character. It’s nice to be reminded people see those qualities in you.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I live on a lake–so anything in the sunshine! We love jet-skiing, going out on the boat. I also love reading–especially by some of the greatest legal minds to have ever lived. Knowledge is such a powerful tool and any chance I have to learn, I take!
