A: University at Buffalo for Law School and I went to Fredonia and Buffalo State College for my Undergrad.

Q: Why did you become a lawyer?

A: It wasn’t something I had planned on; I had always wanted to be a teacher. During my Senior Year at Buffalo State, I was a History Education major; a lot of people were applying for the LSAT. I thought I’d take it, too, to see what would happen. I applied to only one law school, UB, and I thought if I did get in, I’d go.  I ended up deferring my admission so I could teach for two years and I started law school after that.

Q: Do you have any pets?
