|Bio:||I recently completed my second year at the University of North Carolina School of Law, where I'm the Symposium Editor for the First Amendment Law Review and president of the UNC chapter of the American Constitution Society.

Before law school, I worked at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation as a Speechwriter and Special Assistant to the Secretary of Transportation. I also have experience working in politics, serving as an Operations and Advance Coordinator in the 2010 re-election campaign of Governor Deval Patrick. I served in Governor Patricks administration in a number of other roles, having experience working in the Judicial Nominating Commission, the Office of Intergovernmental Relations, and the Massachusetts Office of Federal-State Relations in Washington, D.C.
I graduated cum laude with a B.A. in political science from Miami University, where I received the Howard White Award for Excellence in Scholarship. I also served as Associate Justice of the Miami University Student Court.
