I am a lawyer in D.C. who previously served as a federal law clerk. Before receiving my J.D. at Georgetown, I taught high school English in Chicago and earned a M.Ed. and B.A. from the University of Notre Dame. I have published on education law and policy, with a focus on school choice, charter schools, and innovation. I chose to get involved with DCFYI as a mentor because I missed working with teens since leaving the classroom. The sense of community and impact DCFYI has was evident almost immediately, and it has been a joy to volunteer so far!
