What was the highlight moment of your four years playing soccer for UNLV as an undergraduate?

There were many highlights in my four years as a collegiate athlete including over-time wins, outstanding travel experiences, and community service events. But the stand-out moment was winning our senior night game and celebrating the experience of college athletics with my family, friends, and teammates.

What values did you take from your experience as a student-athlete that you've applied to your law studies and your service as Nevada Law Journal Editor-in-chief?

My experience as a student-athlete was invaluable in shaping my professional value system.Soccer developed my passion for working as part of a team, my appreciation of peoples’ varied personalities and respective working styles, and my core values of integrity, balance, and loyalty. Athletics also helped me develop discipline and time-management skills, which are key in my role as editor-in-chief of the law review. 

What are your plans following graduation in May?

I have accepted a job with O’Melveny & Myers, and I am beyond excited to join the firm and my amazing colleagues.Back to soccer.

Was there a player you strove to emulate?

Absolutely!The 1999 US Women’s World Cup team—including Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Brandi Chastain, and Michelle Akers—was an inspiration. I vividly remember watching and cheering during the 1999 World Cup Championship game. These women set a special example for young, female soccer players of my generation, and they set the stage for the immense success of women’s soccer in the United States.
