What are your career goals?
My career goal is to be a well-trained, practicing attorney. I'd like to have a diverse legal career that offers a wide range of experiences.

What motivated you to purse a legal career?
After my first year of undergraduate education I found myself having career identity crises. I had recently given up my long time goal of being a physician and had no idea what I wanted to do. When I focused on my skills and the types of things I am good at such as reading, writing and public speaking pursuing a legal career was a natural fit.

Favorite Class/Professor(s)
My favorite class as of yet has been Constitutional law with Professor Strang

Thoughts on Toledo
Overall my 1L year experience was successful and dare I say enjoyable. I had excellent Professors and a great law school staff that were ready willing and able to help at any step along the way. Toledo has a very welcoming and nice culture. This is not only true of the university but particularly the legal community.

Personal Interests
Long distance running, video games, table tennis
