My interest in business began several years ago as an undergrad at the University of Memphis. Upon completing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Finance, I was particularly interested in business law and took the opportunity to pursue an MBA and JD dual degree at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and University of Memphis. Throughout law school, I developed a great deal of passion and enthusiasm about litigation. I enjoyed participating in the law school’s In School Moot Court Competition and In School Mock Trial Competition.
