What inspired you to pursue a law degree?

I have been interested in attending law school since my freshman year of college but wanted to be absolutely sure it was a beneficial decision for my career. After getting married and spending several years in the workforce, I desired more intellectual challenge than my current job could afford and looked into law again. The mental stimulation and fulfillment of a career in the legal field excited me and I chose to attend law school.

Why did you choose OU Law?

I have lived in Norman for 6 years now and I love the university and the city. Currently, my husband is pursuing a doctoral degree at OU so it made sense for me to come back to OU for law school. 

What is something most people don't know about you?

I love classic novels so much that I named my dog Mr. Darcy and my cat Jane Pawsten.
