Career Highlights 
“Being member of the 2012 Class of Dunn Fellows where I worked as a Press Assistant for Governor Pat Quinn was a really fun and insightful experience. I would highly recommend the Dunn Fellowship Program for any individuals who wish to pursue a career in Illinois Government.”

Memories of SSU/UIS 
“My favorite moment at UIS was winning Springfest—twice. Springfest is such a fun-filled week packed with activities and competition, and was a great way to meet new people at UIS!”

How did UIS change or prepare you?
“The UIS Legal Studies program was wonderful preparation for law school, particularly the dreaded LES 401, Legal Research and Citation and LES 402 Legal Writing. I cannot explain how instrumental these classes were in preparation for law school—they truly gave me an edge over my peers.”

Favorite Book/Movie
“I’m a Harry Potter junkie.”
