Personal Summary

I am a senior History student who grew up in San Antonio, currently at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I will receive my degree next spring, graduating with History Honors, and I am looking to complete my LSATs in the Fall. My eventual goal is to practice real estate law with an eye towards land conservation as well as issues regarding river and more general outdoor access.

I have worked at climbing walls for the past three years in both Tennessee and North Carolina, as well as various other outdoor jobs. These jobs have given me extensive training in customer service, leadership, group instruction, and staying focused under pressure. I have been working this past semester increasing outdoor access through Legacy Parks Foundation and want to experience more of the behind the scenes work of conservation.
