Summary

I am a J.D. candidate attending the University of Miami School of Law on a Dean's Merit Scholarship with a focus on corporate law, real estate and tax. I have strong quantitative skills and am currently pursuing the Charter Financial Analyst designation. I am looking to add value to an organization in south Florida where I can leverage both my legal and financial skill sets.
