"Hello and welcome! Entering law school will initiate a change, not just in your education, but in who you are. I am thrilled to be a part of that journey. While at the Washington College of Law, you will be able to further find and define your drive, voice, and passions. In order to help you with this, we have the tools and resources to guide you along the way.

The people, culture, and opportunities of DC drew me to this area from a life spent in Florida. DC boasts a fantastic cycling culture which I actively take part in, from commuting daily to campus, to weekend rides which allow me to explore the city and the plethora of local trails. You will also be hard pressed to find a place with a more diverse food culture than DC. From fancy delicacies to local food trucks, your taste buds will be happy you moved here.

American University Washington College of Law will deliver the well rounded educational and life experience every student hopes to achieve. If you ever have any questions about the admissions process or life in the city, please feel to contact me."

"I'm looking forward to working with as you pursue your legal education. Our students make this school a vibrant and passionate institution. From the clinical programs, to the study abroad opportunities, to the externship program, AUWCL offers a wide variety of possibilities for experiential learning.

On a personal note, I love living and working in Washington DC and I'm sure you will too. I was born and raised in North Carolina, but am proud to call DC home. It is an active city with fantastic professional and recreational opportunities. I enjoy walking around Eastern Market on a warm spring morning, running the trails in Rock Creek Park, or checking out a new band at the Rock and Roll Hotel on H street.

In addition to being a great city to live in, why not study law where the law is made?

I like working for AUWCL because of people like you - our students. Please contact me with any questions you may have about our admissions process or about DC living!"
