What’s great about your job?

I really enjoy working with applicants from the time they are prospects, perhaps first meeting someone on the road, right thru to the time they arrive for the fall semester.   

Do you have advice for nontraditional students?

Whether you are looking to enhance your current career or change careers, it is important not to underestimate the importance of the LSAT. Do your research. Allow us to help you make a connection with current Delaware Law students to better inform your decision. Law school is an investment and everyone should make an informed decision. And prepare yourself for a journey that will be nothing like what you have done before.

What’s Great About Your Job?

I most enjoy meeting with applicants and helping them to connect the dots from planning for law school to actually attending. Each applicant has a unique story and a passion for something. I love the diversity of our applicants and get so excited when one says yes to Delaware Law.

What Makes a Good Letter of Recommendation?

Regardless of who writes the letter, I think it is important to understand the nature of the relationship first and foremost. How does the writer know the applicant? If it’s a professor, did he or she have the applicant in only one class? Several classes? Perhaps an advisor to a club the applicant led? If it is an employer, how long has the applicant worked for him or her and in what capacity? Understanding the nature and depth of the professional relationship helps me to put the information in perspective.

What’s Great About Your Job?

I enjoy meeting students from all different backgrounds and from all over the country and the world. It is exciting to help students achieve their dreams by providing them the necessary resources and advice. I enjoy listening to their stories and it always amazes me how multifaceted the law is. Students come to us with diverse academic, life, and work experiences, and they all tie into the practice of law. It’s great to help students discover their path, or assist them in fulfilling their goals.

What Makes You Proud?

I work together with our Student Ambassadors, who are representatives of our community. Our Student Ambassadors are valuable resources for prospective students, as they provide a student perspective on academic and campus life. It’s fun to work with them during Admission’s events such as our Information Sessions.
