Five Questions

September 3, 2008Duke Law News

1. Where are you from? Is your hometown famous/known for anything?
I'm from Centennial, Colorado, just south of Denver. So far as I know, we're not famous for anything.

2. What is your undergraduate degree? Other degrees?
My degrees are in theater and Spanish from Texas Tech and a master's certificate in bilingual elementary education from California State Univ-East Bay.

3. What do you like most about Duke Law or what is your favorite memory of law school?
My favorite memories all involve the people here at Duke: the faculty and my peers. I love how, because it's a small school, you can be involved in a lot of different activities and get to know people of all different backgrounds. In that vein, Moot Court has been one of my favorites -- engaging with cutting edge legal issues, working closely with a partner, and representing Duke at competitions.

4. What do you ultimately want to do with your law degree?
I still want to save the world! I hope to work in education law, improving the quality of opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

5. What unique accomplishments or abilities do you have that people might not know about you?
I like to quilt and knit and make blankets for Project Linus, a charity that gives handmade blankets to seriously ill children in hospitals.

They were there to listen as seven entrepreneurs pitched them their ideas for applying technology to a profession that has historically been resistant to such overtures: the law.
