1. What made you become a lawyer?
I started out in college as an education major, thinking that I wanted to teach and eventually become a professor. I did not enjoy my education classes at all, and by chance I took a legal writing class as an elective. It focused on persuasive writing, and I found that I really enjoyed it. That planted a seed, and got me to start looking into law school. I ended up working for a year after college before going to law school, and that solidified the decision for me.
