After college, I interned for International Justice Mission in Kenya, helping IJM represent children who had been sexually assaulted and prisoners who had been falsely accused and reform the public justice system in Nairobi. That formative year with IJM confirmed my calling of advocacy through a career in law.
To me, baseball embodies timeless principles, the unfailing American spirit, and unforgettable moments with family and friends. Whether I’m rooting for the Texas Rangers in Arlington or savoring a summer game on Cape Cod, time stops and I feel at home.
I believe that public service is at the core of the legal profession. This gavel from the Texas Senate and sound block from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas remind me to act justly, preserve the rule of law, and seek the good of my neighbors.
