Class of 2015
Editor-in-Chief, Volume 40
Staff Member, Volume 39
I grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and studied Spanish and Philosophy at Middlebury College in Vermont. After college I spent four years teaching Spanish at St. Sebastian's School in Needham, MA, while completing a Master's degree in Spanish. In 2008 I moved to Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia and worked as a hiking and horseback riding guide for two years before returning to teaching at the Community School in Sun Valley, ID.
I am the Editor in Chief of the North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation and a member of the Transactional and Corporate Law Association and the Hispanic and Latino Law Student Association. I also translate for the clinical programs at UNC Law and have done pro bono work for several immigration law organizations. I worked as a summer associate at Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice LLP during the summer of 2013 and at Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP in New York, NY, in the summer of 2014.
On January 27, the International Court of Justice (ICJ)
handed down its ruling in a border dispute between Chile and Peru. The decision is an affirmation of the
capacity of the ICJ to find equitable solutions to discrete international
conflicts. The fact that both Chile and Peru are able to
claim the decision as both a compromise and a victory shows that the ICJ can be
a powerful tool for improving international relations.
