What is your current job?

Associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

Why did you choose this profession?

My parents are lawyers and after working often with lawyers during my time at NERA, I decided to go to law school.

What more do you wish to accomplish in your professional career?

Among other things, pursing a job in the U.S. Attorney's Office and running for office (at some point).

Tell us about a decision or change you made that turned out to be a positive career move.

Taking some time off between college and graduate school. Working for 2-3 years in the interim helped prepare me for life after graduate school and made me appreciate life during graduate school (when I actually had free time).

How has Haverford influenced your professional career?

A great deal. My work with a professor at Haverford got me my first job, Haverford helped me get in to law school, and the friends I made along the way have been a great resource.
