I have always been intrigued by human behavior and decision-making. The best aspects of law are analyzing how it shapes human behavior and how human behavior shapes law.
When studying and practicing law, in my spare time I found myself coming back to psychology in many ways. Whether taking legal classes that incorporated the social sciences, working in the mental health legal clinic at UChicago Law, or reading psychology studies in my spare time, studying human behavior has always been something I was passionate about. This passion drove me to return to school to pursue an advanced degree in Applied Psychology at USC. It was in this program that I was first exposed to jury consulting, and things just clicked into place from there.
This profession uniquely allows me to leverage my skillset as a strategist and marries my interest in both law and psychology. I’m at my professional best when I’m doing work where I can turn abstract ideas into practical solutions for my clients.
