I study at Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad College of Law.
Before transferring to NSU, I attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego. I completed the first semester with a 4.3 G.P.A., joined the Thomas Jefferson Law Review Association, and ranked second out of 114 students in my law class.
My current research concerns recent bail reform legislation constitutionalizing preventive detention, infringing the fundamental right to bail, and causing legally presumed—and in some cases, factually innocent—individuals to suffer pretrial, pre-conviction punishment.
I have received several awards acknowledging my academic achievement: Distinguished Honor Roll (two semesters), Dean’s List, and earning the CALI Excellence for the Future Award®– in six courses. In 2021, I contributed to Ben Templin’s and David H. Spratt’s Contracts: A Modern Coursebook (3rd ed. 2023).
In May 2022, The State Bar of California certified me as a law student. During the summer of 2022, I worked as a law clerk for Ramey Litigation Group APC. I was also a part-time teaching assistant in a first-year criminal law course taught as part of Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Early Start Program.
I have worked in several different fields. Some of my former employers include: Apsan Law Offices; Philips Lighting NA Corp.; Avaya Inc.; and Clean Energy Fuels Corp. Most of my law clerk experience is drafting motions, pleadings, and briefs in federal immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals.
