I was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia.  After graduating from Brookstone School in 2006, I headed up to the Classic City for undergrad where I majored in Economics and Political Science.  I wasn’t quite ready to leave Athens, so I stuck around for law school.  After graduating in 2013, I moved back to Columbus to begin a two-year federal clerkship in the Middle District of Georgia.
