Philosophy/Pre-Law and Music with Vocal Emphasis

WashU Law's OUTLAW chapter & Marketing & Social Media Chair

October 7, 2019 10:10 AM

I graduated Millikin University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy/Pre-Law and Music with a Vocal Emphasis. I was a First Year Experience Mentor for Dr. Hartsock, one of the philosophy professor's, and I was captain of the Ethics Bowl Team, competed in Moot Court, and was Chief Justice of Moot Court my senior year. After graduation, I moved to Springfield, Illinois, where I worked for the Legislative Research Unit of the Illinois General Assembly for one year doing nonpartisan legislative research for the state legislators. After that, I worked for the Fourth District Illinois Appellate Court for two years in the Research Department, where I did editing and cite checking for the judges and their law clerks. Recently, I have moved to St. Louis to start law school at the Washington University School of Law. Since starting my 1L year, I have joined WashU Law's OUTLAW chapter and was chosen as the Marketing and Social Media Chair.
