More About

As a 22-year old “Triple Dawg” at UGA, I am more than excited to be in the process of receiving a fourth degree from the finest institution in the land. While continuing my current research on the opinion assignment process at the Supreme Court level, I look forward to studying the intersectionality of gender and law at the federal and state court level. I am currently Miss University of Georgia and spend my spare time promoting literacy in Athens-Clarke County.
