About

I will be attending the Thomas R. Kline School of Law (Drexel University) in the fall. I chose this school because I fell in love with the location in University City and I thought that it would be a great experience to step outside of my comfort zone and try the city life for a few years. I also received a very generous scholarship and it made the most sense money-wise and program-wise to attend Drexel. 

I am either looking towards Health Law or more specifically, Concussion Law. I have such a passion for that field and a solid background in concussion research from my time at Ursinus.

Impact of Ursinus

Ursinus has prepared me for law school in so many ways, from my ability to read and analyze information thoroughly to my presentation and public speaking skills to my writing abilities. I’m so excited to start my new chapter at Drexel Law, and so thankful for everything that Ursinus has done for me!

Involvement on Campus 

I stayed involved on campus as captain on the Ursinus College Gymnastics team, which took up a great deal of my time. I also work as a dance and tumbling instructor off campus. I also participated in intensive summer fellows’ research in neuroscience.
