I grew up in the treasure valley and Moscow is my first experience living outside of Boise as an adult. I enjoy sunshine, snowboarding, live music, and playing outside – all of which are readily available in both Moscow and Boise! I have a degree in Psychology and worked as a Bankruptcy Legal Assistant and Tax Paralegal for four years before coming to law school. My favorite law school classes so far are Contracts and Legal Research and Writing so I am hoping to get a job doing some kind of transactional work. I want to clerk after I graduate and am using that as an opportunity to explore other states so am applying for clerkships all over the country in hopes that fate will lead me somewhere new and fun!
