I attended Duke University for undergrad and majored in German literature and political science, and minored in Russian studies. I graduated in 2009, and then attended Penn State’s Dickinson School of Law in order to study American law as well as civil law among other international legal traditions. I received my Juris Doctor in May 2012. My final degree is MMS.

Whether it was working for a Congress member on Capitol Hill, or as a summer associate at an international law firm in Shanghai, or helping to launch a start-up dot com company in Berlin, I’m fueled by inspiration and curiosity, which helps me to be creative and think outside the box.
