MPM '23 (part-time)
Hometown: Fairfax, VA
Current City: Washington, DC
Why did you choose McCourt? I was excited about McCourt because it was easy to see how the course offerings aligned with my professional goals. I also wanted the ability to complete my master's while continuing a full-time job. But upon being admitted, I had trouble deciding between the MPM and MPP programs. The faculty and students that helped guide me through that decision were so helpful and kind, which only reemphasized that I was making the right decision in coming to McCourt.
What professional/ work experience did you have prior to coming to McCourt? I'm currently working at the Democratic National Committee, and prior to that was employed by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Supreme Court.
What has been the best part of your experience so far? Getting to know my classmates! I'm really enjoying the different perspectives that everyone brings to the program.
Undergraduate University, degree, and major: James Madison University (Go Dukes!), BS - Justice Studies
Hobbies/ Interests: Hanging out with family, friends, and my puppy! I also love going to concerts and checking out new restaurants.
