"I love Washburn Law because it is made up of people who put students first. Faculty, administration, and staff work hard to create a warm, supportive environment. This frees students to take the risks necessary for rigorous learning."

Her courses included Bioethics and the Law; Civil Procedure; Criminal Law; Legal Analysis, Research, and Writing; Legal Methods; and Transactional Drafting. She became Associate Dean for Student Affairs in fall of 2011.
