I am a rising 2L here at Elisabeth Haub School of Law of Pace University.

I graduated from William Paterson University in 2014 with a B.S. in Environmental Science. At WPU, I was a research assistant for Dr. Jennifer Callanan where I analyzed soil for impacts of fire on clay mineralogy and chemistry. I also played football for WPU and was one of the captains of the team my senior year.

During my winter break of my 1L year, I went to Charleston, West Virginia for a 5-day internship with Thompson & Barney, an environmental law firm in the state’s capital. There I assisted in a discovery process for a recent coal mining case of a flood caused by a coal mining operation’s mountain top removal process.

At Elisabeth Haub, I am the secretary for the Pace Energy and Climate Law Society, Vice Chair on the NELMCC grading and scoring committee, and a governance board member for the IUCN. I will be attending the IUCN United States Conference in Warrenton, Virginia in June 2017.

I came to Elisabeth Haub to pursue the environmental law certificate with an interest in energy/climate law and agriculture/food law.

Fun facts: I play guitar, love hiking, and I own a school bus with my best friend that we converted into a camper.
