“Before law school, I was a middle school teacher and helped found one of the most successful public charter schools in New Orleans. For six years, my job was to be on my feet every day commanding and engaging my audience and taking complex issues and making them easy to understand. This experience has translated directly into my law practice and has empowered me to feel at home in the courtroom as a young lawyer.”
