I grew up in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and I went to Oklahoma State University where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Geology. After that, I went to Texas A&M University where I earned a Master’s degree in Geology. After graduate school, I taught earth sciences as an adjunct faculty instructor at Eastfield Community College in Mesquite, TX before moving to Oklahoma City to work as a petroleum geologist for Eland Energy, Inc.
Leaving my job as a geologist to begin law school was a difficult decision! I was afraid I might be throwing away everything I had worked toward to start a legal career—I could not have been more wrong. Over the past year, I have met so many wonderful people, and I believe that the skills I learned while working a full-time job have contributed to my success in law school.
At OCU Law, our professors are dedicated to providing an excellent legal education, and there is a unique atmosphere of teamwork and comradery among students. We have many student organizations to join allowing you to meet classmates with similar interests. I am a member of Phi Delta Phi, the Federalist Society, Oklahoma City University Law Review, and the ABA Advocacy Team. I sincerely hope that you will visit our campus and see for yourself what it is like to be a law student at OCU Law. I look forward to meeting you!
