A JD with over a decade of experience in the legal field with a strong, natural emphasis in family law, wills, trusts & estate planning, guardianships, contracts, civil litigation, and civil rights. Since 1997, I have edited and published various works, as well as served as Editor-in-Chief of "The Voice," a literary magazine at the prestigious Oberlin College.
Author of "Awaken: How Emotional Intelligence Competencies Can Improve the Practice of Law," which became required 1L reading at UNMSOL in 2009.
Created a pocket-sized card for doctors that matched medical symptoms with potential legal issues for the Medical-Legal Alliance at UNMSOL Clinic.
Most recent accomplishment: passed the February 2012 North Carolina Bar exam which has a historically low passage rate of 46%. Family, Trusts, and Civil Procedure were the swing questions.
