I grew up in the tropical Miami, Florida, and after four years in upstate New York I returned to the southeast for law school. After studying neurobiology and plant science during my undergraduate years at Cornell, I decided to go to law school because it allowed me to combine my interests in science and litigation. Specifically, I'm interested in environmental and property law, both locally and internationally. My memberships on the Environmental Moot Court Team and the North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation have allowed me to fully explore these interests, and I look forward to learning more in the years to come. In my personal time I enjoy visiting national parks, rock climbing, and yoga.
