I also find that my desire to have compassion for others, which was at the core of my thesis, continues to drive me professionally, as an attorney, and in my every day life.

How has your liberal arts education influenced you? How do you apply your LAE in your current career?

It has afforded me a broad and unique perspective to various legal issues. My LAE inspired me to pursue employment and travel opportunities that I would have likely not been exposed me had it not been for my experiences at Washington College.

Who was your favorite faculty/staff member? Story?

I fondly remember the Smithsonian trip Dr. Kehm took my class, of which was solely comprised of myself and another. It’s been a long time, but I recall being able to walk into the back rooms of the Natural History Museum and holding a Mars rock.

What is your favorite Washington College memory?

I have so many, but I always enjoyed opportunities to celebrate with friends.

Did your Senior Capstone Experience (or thesis project) have a major influence on your future career or your personal growth? If so, please explain what your SCE entailed and how it influenced who or where you are today.

My senior thesis was about Roma discrimination in the Czech Republic. Upon graduating Washington College, I worked for several years with the National Security Council’s Office of European Affairs. This issue was often discussed with many of our counterparts. I also find that my desire to have compassion for others, which was at the core of my thesis, continues to drive me professionally, as an attorney, and in my every day life.
