In a nutshell, what do you do?
I am pursuing a JD degree focusing in intellectual property and strategic businessplanning. My working dissertation analyzes how Michigan IP law supports market growth of the craft brewing industry. Essentially, I am studying how law interacts with marketing, finance, and management.
Why do you love what you do?
My personality is service-driven. With every step of my career, I challenge myself to make a positive impace on my community. Practicing law in business challenges me to invent creative strategies for business owners and stakeholders, while providing the legal assistance to protect and grow market share.
How did Albion help you get there?
Practicing law is about strategy, analysis, and experience. If not for Albion, I would not have been prepared for the challenges of law school. Albion's liberal arts curriculum prepared me for MSU's diverse and deeply analytic classroom experiences. Also, interning for house counsels at Poptent, Inc., and Roush Enterprises, provided me with invaluable experiences, skills and networs that opened doors to my current positions. Most importantly, Albion's support system of faculty, staff and alumni continuously guide my career. I may be a Spartan, but at heart I am always a Brit!
For me, Albion ...
... is undeniably the best choice I have made. Albion challenged me into personal growth and rewarded me with opportunities I could never have forseen. I would not be where I am today, personally or professionally, without the support of my Albion friends and family!
