Moving to Florida from a small town in Pennsylvania exposed me to a plethora of different experiences and cultures. During my time in high school, my passion for criminal justice reform was sparked after I dual enrolled at a local community college for criminal justice. I then moved on to complete my undergraduate degree at Stetson University with a B.S. in Pre Law-Psychology. While at Stetson, I attended a keynote speaker event where a death row exoneree gave remarks on his experience spending 30+ years on death row for a crime he did not commit. After this day, I knew I wanted to dedicate my life as a lawyer to criminal justice reform and post-conviction litigation. I am currently a 2L at Stetson Law in the social justice advocacy concentration. In addition, I am currently an intern with the Innocence Project of Florida where I work with potential applicants reviewing their claims of factual innocence and finding creative ways to advocate for them in post-conviction proceedings.
